Kevin Delaney, managing editor of The Journal Online — or WSJ.com, as it is better known — is taking a job at the Atlantic Media Company, reports Kara Swisher of All Things D.
Swisher reports, “The move is a blow to the Journal’s online efforts, as Delaney, who got the top job in late 2009, is a well-regarded journalist and editor.
“(He is certainly an AllThingsD.com fave of those at the Dow Jones mother ship, but he still did not call me back to comment! Thanks a lot, Kevin!)
“It has not yet been determined who will succeed him at WSJ.com, sources said. Delaney is not leaving immediately.
“Delaney joined the media giant in 1992, was a prominent tech reporter in Silicon Valley and was also deputy managing editor at WSJ.com.”
