Amey Stone, the former managing editor at MSN Money, has joined CBS MoneyWatch as executive editor.
Her first day at the new job is Monday.
Stone left MSN Money on Friday, weeks after the website cut its freelance and contract business journalists with plans to post content from its partners.
Stone joined MSN Money in 2010, after being managing editor of DailyFinance.com, a business site launched in 2009 by AOL.
Stone was also an assistant managing editor at AOL Money & Finance, where she oversaw business news and investing coverage. She had been with AOL since 2005 and is the founding editor of BloggingStocks, WalletPop and, most recently, DailyFinance.
Prior to joining AOL, Stone spent eight years as a senior writer at BusinessWeek Online covering finance, investing and the economy. She has also worked as a financial writer at BusinessWeek magazine, SmartMoney.com, and Financial Planning.
She is the author of “King of Capital,” a biography of Sandy Weill, and a graduate of Yale University and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
