Fruehling named Washington Business Journal editor
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.”
