Gitter named weekend Business & Finance editor at WSJ
Wall Street Journal editor Gerard Baker sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
I’m pleased to announce that Emily Gitter is our new Editor of Weekend Business and Finance.
Emily will lead our efforts to create a new weekend business and finance section and reimagine the way we cover business and finance over the weekend, on our digital platforms and in print. She will report to Mike Miller.
Emily’s exceptional journalistic, presentation and leadership skills have been on display for the past five years as editor of the Mansion section, which she helped launch and built into a popular and successful fixture of the WSJ. Before that, she was the deputy editor of Weekend Journal.
She joined the Journal in 2005 as an editor with our first Saturday features section (then called Pursuits). Before coming here, she worked at New York Magazine and the New York Sun, where she served as Features Editor.
A graduate of Yale University, Emily lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Ryan Sager, and their four-year-old daughter.
Emily’s first task will be to build a team. You can see the open positions here.
