Dealbook turns 10, and Sorkin tweaks title
Dealbook, the Wall Street news site from the New York Times, turns 10 years old on Saturday, and editor and founder Andrew Ross Sorkin writes that he’s changing his title for the site to better reflect his role in its operation.
Sorkin writes, “With such a tremendous group in place, 10 years later, I felt it was time to tweak my title in DealBook’s nameplate to better reflect the enormous contributions of the reporting and editing team. It will be Editor-at-Large. Of course, I will continue overseeing the team and writing, recruiting new talent and developing new projects for DealBook. That last item is a bit of a tease – we’ve got a number of exciting new projects under development that we hope to bring you in 2012, so stay tuned.”

“Like any fast growing venture, DealBook keeps evolving,” wrote Ingrassia. “It carries more stories and columns than ever, so there is more day-to-day editing and management shared by a team. Andrew remains deeply involved, continuing to provide the vision and helping to oversee coverage issues, as well as writing his column and stories, as noted in the announcement.”
