Doug Fruehling, the current managing editor of the Washington Business Journal, was named Friday to take the paper’s top editorial spot.
He replaces Mike Mills, who leaves for a job at Roll Call.
Reporter Tierney Plumb writes, “‘With the current recession, high-quality business journalism is more important now than ever,’ Fruehling said. ‘Our No. 1 mission is to provide our readers the news and information they need to make critical business decisions.’
“Fruehling, who holds a journalism degree from Ohio University, previously served as managing editor of Roll Call. He started his career as a reporter for the Journal Star in Peoria, Ill.
“Fruehling, 40, replaces Mike Mills, who resigned to take a new role as editorial director of Roll Call Group. Mills had been with the WBJ since March 2007.”
