WSJ names Mossberg’s replacements
Wall Street Journal technology editor Jonathan Krim sent out the following announcement to the staff on Monday:
We are delighted to announce that our own Geoff Fowler is named personal technology columnist/reviewer of the Wall Street Journal. Geoff will be joined by Joanna Stern as personal tech columnist/reviewer with an emphasis on video. Stern joins us from ABC News, where she holds a similar position.
Geoff and Joanna will be the nucleus of an expanded, multi-platform personal-technology group that will take us to new heights in helping readers choose and understand the vast array of digital products shaping our lives. Thanks to Walt Mossberg, the Journal has been the leader in this arena for more than two decades. This dynamic team will enhance that position.
Joining Geoff and Joanna will be Wilson Rothman, currently technology and science editor of NBC News Digital, who will take the position of personal technology editor, overseeing the group. Nathan-Olivarez Giles, who recently joined us, will serve as personal-tech news blogger and web producer.
More details with full and fun biographies of Geoff, Joanna, Wilson and Nathan are on our blog post here announcing the moves. Please join us in welcoming and congratulating them.
