OLD Media Moves

New ME named at TheStreet.com

August 19, 2009

Mike Gannon has been promoted to managing editor at TheStreet and is now overseeing all staff-produced content at the financial news Web site. He previously led TheStreet’s coverage of the financial services industry as a deputy managing editor.

Gannon joined TheStreet.com in March 2007, after spending more than six years as a reporter and editor for The Journal News in Westchester County, N.Y. Earlier in his career, he covered venture capital, private equity and the IPO market for Thomson Financial’s Venture Capital Journal and advertising for Sales-Fax, an independent trade weekly. He earned a B.A. in history from the College of the Holy Cross and an M.S. in journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School.

Also, Glenn Hall has taken over as editor in chief at TheStreet.com following the recent departure of long-time EIC David Morrow, who left to become the first Donald W. Reynolds Endowed Chair in Business Journalism at the Reynolds School of Journalism of the University of Nevada, Reno.

Hall was previously editor of TheStreet, a new executive position created in 2008 to work with the editor in chief on editorial and business strategies for the company. Before joining TheStreet, Hall served as deputy editor and chief innovation officer at The Orange County Register and as a news manager at Bloomberg News in Washington, Amsterdam and Frankfurt.

He also worked as an investigative reporter at The Journal-Gazette in Fort Wayne, Ind. Hall received a bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science from The Ohio State University and a certificate in project and program management from Boston University.
