Elena Cherney

Wall Street Journal editor in chief Emma Tucker sent out the following on Thursday:

Dear all,

I am delighted to announce that Elena Cherney is now Senior Editor of the Wall Street Journal and will lead our Standards and Ethics team.

In this role, as a vital part of the Journal’s senior leadership, Elena will advise me and the newsroom on the most complex and ambitious work we do and stand in for me or Charles when the occasion requires. She will play a role championing the Journal’s support of press freedom and free speech. Under her direction, Standards and Ethics will continue to play a critical part in ensuring the Journal maintains the highest and most rigorous standards of fairness and integrity.

Elena first joined the newsroom in 2000 as a reporter, and after a detour to the Globe and Mail, where she served as business editor, she rejoined the Journal in 2014 as Canada bureau chief. She has held a number of positions, first joining the masthead as Planning Editor and most recently oversaw coverage as Chief News Editor.

Elena will start this new job immediately and will continue to report directly to me.
