David Callaway, the editor in chief of Marketwatch.com who is leaving to become the editor of USA Today, writes about the people he has worked with at the financial news site in his goodbye column.

Callaway writes, “Through it all, the MarketWatch team around the world worked urgently to file headlines, break news, supply data and charts, provide instant and long-form analysis, and generate some of the best commentary out there from our stable of columnists. At the same time the very real men and women behind the coverage for all our readers lived their daily lives together. They helped each other through sicknesses and deaths of fathers and mothers, siblings and friends. They lived the excitement of news assignments around the world and built their careers. They found love, and married — sometimes to each other — “and had beautiful children who transformed their lives.

“There was Julie Rannazzisi, our original bond reporter and later New York bureau chief, who tragically passed away in 2004 from cancer at the age of 35. There was Marshall Loeb, the father of modern business journalism and a MarketWatch columnist, who still writes for us at age 83, and who until just a few years ago appeared in print on the web, on TV and on radio every single day. And there is everybody in between who has dedicated their time, their effort and their careers to making MarketWatch the greatest financial news organization the Internet age has ever known.

“Those are the things I’m most proud of. That I’ve been able to make MarketWatch a secure, challenging and exciting part of their careers and lives. And at the same time, been able to share their hopes and dreams, and successes and hardships.”
