Delaney named new WSJ.com ME

December 15, 2009

Wall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson sent the following e-mail to the newspaper’s staff Tuesday afternoon:

“I’m delighted to announce that Kevin Delaney will take over as managing editor of The Wall Street Journal Online, succeeding Rebecca Blumenstein, who has been elevated to the dizzy heights of the troika.

“Kevin is deftly digital and been a knowing leader of the development of WSJ.com in recent years. He’s been deputy managing editor at WSJ.com since July 2008, and played a critical role in commissioning content, crafting topics pages, and fashioning outside partnerships. Before joining WSJ.com, he was a senior special writer in the San Francisco bureau, where he covered Google, Yahoo and other Internet companies, and learned the mysterious secrets of the tech trade. Prior to that, he covered technology and other topics in the Paris bureau, having begun his Journal career as a college intern in 1992.

“Kevin will report to Alan Murray and will benefit from the connection with his two predecessors, Rebecca and Almar Latour, who have moved to very senior posts in our far-flung empire, on which the digital sun never sets.”
