The Wall Street Journal today announced a newsroom reorganization designed to align the publication with mobile-first goals. The reorganization includes a promotion for deputy editor in chief Matt Murray, who has been named executive editor.

It also creates a number of new senior-lever positions including chief news editor, news planning editor, analytics and audience editor and an editor for digital content strategy. Many of the roles are designed with the idea of pushing the publication into the digital age, and are a response to parent company Dow Jones’ WSJ2020 review, which is exploring both cost-cutting and innovation opportunities for the publication.
