MarketWatch.com has hired Charles Passy to cover trending money stories.
“It’s a great website that stays on top of financial news, but is eager to look at anything and everything in the world with a curious eye,” he wrote on Twitter. “In other words, the perfect place for my next chapter.”
Passy has been with Dow Jones since April 2010, currently on staff at The Wall Street Journal, responsible for covering restaurants, cultural groups and Broadway for daily New York news pages and other parts of the paper and online.
Regularly write for the Journal’s page one, especially the popular A-hed feature devoted to all things quirky. He has also contributed the “Weekend Sip” bottle-of-the-week column for MarketWatch.com, which has sometimes run in conjunction with a video feature on WSJ.com. That column will continue in his new job.
Passy previously worked at The Palm Beach Post for 17 years.
