The Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal, an American City Business Journals paper, is looking to hire an editor in chief, but the current editor is not leaving the paper.

Moryt Milo, a veteran Silicon Valley journalist who became the editor of the paper in 2008, is moving into a new position as the print editor.

The new editor in chief will oversee print and online and be very focused on digital audience development.

The new San Jose position signals a shift in how ACBJ papers are being run on the editorial side as the Charlotte-based company looks to deliver news more online and through new technology. The company recently launched Chicago and New York news websites even though it doesn’t have print papers in those cities.

A similar move was made at the company’s Boston Business Journal last month as it hired a managing editor for print and promoted a a staffer to managing editor for online verticals.

Milo joined the Business Journal from the Silicon Valley Community Newspapers group, which publishes 10 community newspapers in the Valley, and is operated by MediaNews Group.
