NY Times announces hiring of Grocer to edit DealBook
New York Times business editor Ellen Pollock sent out the following announcement on Monday:
We are excited to announce that Stephen Grocer has joined Business Day as an editor for DealBook.
We couldn’t think of a better person to help re-imagine DealBook. He hails from the Wall Street Journal where he helped launched Deal Journal, worked on MarketBeat, oversaw interactive graphics for Money & Investing during the financial crisis and then rolled up seven of WSJ’s blogs into MoneyBeat. He also created eight email newsletters and alerts, a live markets video show and a podcast.
David Enrich knows his finance chops firsthand: “Steve was the Journal’s resident digital innovator on all things finance. His knowledge of financial markets – their histories, how they work, who the key players are – is virtually encyclopedic.”
After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College and Columbia Journalism School, Steve started his career at the Asbury Park Press where he covered high school sports and then three towns in central Jersey. He now lives in Brooklyn, with his wife and two young kids. A little Times Trivia. His wife, Sarah Graham, also works here in Smarter Living. Lucky for us, he could get Scoop lessons at the kitchen table.
When he’s not boning up on our digital systems, he enjoys cooking, especially grilling and smoking meats. Yankee fans beware. Stephen says he loves Boston sports teams. “My daughter now asks every weekend when Tom Brady is playing.”
Please welcome Stephen to the department.
