New editor at Washington Business Journal
Washington Business Journal managing editor John McCalla has been named to lead the weekly newspaper and its Web operations as editor, replacing Beth Hunt, who is moving to Charlotte, N.C., to become manager of editorial operations for the paper’s parent company, American City Business Journals.
A short story in the newspaper stated, “Hunt was editor for seven years and is a 17-year veteran of ACBJ. In her new position, she will develop and implement new content initiatives and editorial training programs, aid recruitment efforts and work on legal issues for the company, which owns 41 business journals across the country.
“McCalla joined ACBJ as a reporter at the Philadelphia Business Journal in 1998 and was promoted to managing editor in Washington in 2001.
“‘Beth and John have been a terrific team these past years,’ says Business Journal Publisher Alex Orfinger, “and I’m confident John will continue Washington Business Journal’s tradition of breaking news, attracting the best journalistic talent — and being the best business publication in Greater Washington.'”
