February 26, 2010


Rob Hunter, an assistant managing editor at BusinessWeek, announced Friday that he’s leaving the magazine recently acquired by Bloomberg to go The Wall Street Journal.

He’s the third high-profile business journalist to leave the magazine in the past week.

In an e-mail to friends and co-workers, Hunter wrote, “As some of you might know, today is my last day at BusinessWeek. Thanks for making my time here so enjoyable. I’ll be starting a job at the Wall Street Journal in a few weeks.”

Hunter became an assistant managing editor in 2007, after serving as a senior editor for finance since November 2005.

Before joining BusinessWeek, Hunter served as editor of SmartMoney.com, where he oversaw all editorial content for the Web site and managed the staff of 20 reporters, editors, and freelancers.

He also held the positions of assistant managing editor and senior editor at SmartMoney.com. Before that, Hunter was a senior editor and then the managing editor of Derivatives Strategy, a monthly magazine. He began his journalism career as a reporter at the Waterford, NY-based newspaper, The Good News.
