Two well-known WSJ reporters could be joining CNBC
Wall Street Journal reporters Kate Kelly and Dennis Berman could be headed to business news network CNBC, following former Journal deputy managing editor Nik Deogun, reports Kevin Allocca of TVNewser.
Kelly is one of the top Wall Street reporters in the business, and she recently wrote a book on the downfall of Bear Stearns. Berman, meanwhile, heads the paper’s mergers and acquisition coverage.
Allocca writes, “According to an industry source, there is interest in both and Berman has been seen at the CNBC office.
“A CNBC spokesperson told TVNewser that they “do not comment on who we consider or who we talk to for a role at CNBC.” Both are highly regarded financial journalists and have appeared on the network in the past.
“With Charlie Gasparino gone to Fox Business Network, it appears CNBC is seeking new seasoned business reporters to bring on board. The Wall Street Journal is a logical starting point as Nik Deogun, the former WSJ Deputy Managing Editor, started as CNBC’s managing editor just last month.”
