WSJ’s Grocer hired by NY Times to be Dealbook editor
Stephen Grocer, an editor of The Wall Street Journal’s MoneyBeat blog, has been hired by The New York Times.
Grocer will be editor of Dealbook, a business and financial news site at The Times that is being relaunched soon.
Grocer starts his new job on Monday.
MoneyBeat was created at The Journal in 2013, bringing together a number of the paper’s beats such as Deal Journal and Market Beat. Grocer previously edited those blogs.
Grocer, a Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism alumnus, has also been a real-time markets editor at The Journal.
Dealbook is The Times’s business news platform for C-level decision-makers, policy officials and everyone who intersects with them. It was started in October 2001 as an email newsletter by Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin, who now also appears on CNBC.
Dealbook went online in 2005, and a Dealbook page began appearing in the print edition of The Times in 2010.
Dealbook managing editor Jeffrey Cane left last month to join Barron’s.
