DiPietro leaves Wall Street Journal
Ben DiPietro, a reporter and editor covering corruption, risk and compliance issues for The Wall Street Journal, has left the publication.
His last day was Tuesday.
DiPietro had been working on the Risk & Compliance Journal team since January 2013. Before that, he was a copy editor on the real time news desk for 18 months.
He was previously an online editor at seafood industry news service Intrafish Media from April 2004 to December 2010. He also worked for two years for Pacific Business News, an American City Business Journals publication.
DiPietro spent nearly 11 years working for the Associated Press in Honolulu. He quit in 2000 when his boss wouldn’t give him time off to go see the Yankees-Mets World Series.
Thomas Fox of the FCPA Compliance Report wrote, “Ben’s weekly column, Crisis of the Week, is a must read for not only Public Relations (PR) and communication professionals but for compliance professionals as well. Each piece lays out the problem and the company’s response from communications professionals.”
I am not sure what the future hold–lots of options, thankfully–and all of this is now possible for me because I had the joy of working in this newsroom. No words can adequately express what I feel about my colleagues and I wish them nothing but health, happiness & good fortune
