Adams named WSJ’s deputy bureau chief for corporate
Wall Street Journal business editor Jamie Heller sent out the following announcement on Monday:
Marcelo and I are thrilled to announce that Russell Adams is named deputy bureau chief in the corporate bureau. At the Journal since 2005, Russell covered sports and then the media industry before transitioning to editing, where he has overseen coverage areas in Money & Investing and Greater New York. Most recently he has been a story editor extraordinaire at 1211.
As an editor, Russell has periodically dipped back into reporting, authoring some of the Journal’s most-memorable stories. He wrote an a-hed about a group of men locked in a decades-old game of tag that is currently being made into a movie; a cover story about the enduring appeal of “The Shawshank Redemption,” and an a-hed about the curious popularity of Jack in the Box tacos.
A San Diego native, Russell has an undergraduate degree in Spanish from Georgetown University and a master’s in journalism from Columbia University. He lives in Manhattan with his wife, Loren, and six-year-old daughter, Leah.
Please join us in congratulating Russell on his new role.
