OLD Media Moves

Changes at the Washington Biz Journal

January 29, 2010

Washington Business Journal editor Doug Fruehling announced some changes to the paper’s coverage in an e-mail obtained Friday by FishbowlDC’s Matt Dornic.

The changes are:

  • “Working the Room” and “Back Page” writer Jen Nycz-Connor will continue that role but has also taken on the role of media strategy manager aka “buzz generator-in-chief.” Fruehling wrote, “Jen will be in charge of taking our social media efforts to the next level.”
  • Associate editor Tim Burn will become the BizSmarts editor and writer. Fruehling stated, “I’ve tasked Tim with re-energizing the special pubs this year, ensuring the content we provide readers in this area is just as good as the rest of our operation.”
  • Commercial real estate staff reporter Melissa Castro will transition into a new role as senior staff reporter for features and “Inner Loop.”
  • Vandana Sinha, who has covered biotech, energy and environment will now focus on Web and evening editing as a senior staff reporter.
  • Staff reporters Tierney Plumb and Sarah Krouse are teaming up to cover all of the commercial real estate in the region.
