WSJ.com managing editor Raju Narisetti sent out the following staff announcement on Monday morning:
Christine Glancey, who has been the bedrock of WSJ.com in the hub and a key force behind making sure our journalism reaches online readers quickly and effectively, is about to take on even more challenging responsibilities as a Deputy Managing Editor of WSJ.com.
In addition to managing the US-based homepage teams, she will now be more deeply involved in long-range planning to showcase major news events (Olympics, Elections etc) as well as newsroom-led projects on the homepage in a multi-faceted way. Christine already works every day with myriad groups and departments — video, blogs, news and features desks, international bureaus, infographics — but will shift some of this focus to more long-range planning and execution. She will work closely with the Social and Engagement team to fully integrate their work into daily wsj.com operations and take on an emerging role of setting audience engagement goals for wsj.com, and executing against them to meet overall newsroom goals. Christine will also continue to engage ever more with editors of our digital network sites, especially SmartMoney.com and MarketWatch.com, to help build cross-site content and audience flows.
More critically, Christine will become a key player in designing new training programs for all our editors in New York as we all transition to multi-platform editing roles, part of the ongoing evolution of WSJ into a more fully integrated news operation that serves all our readers on multiple platforms.
Christine, who joined the Journal in 1988, has held newsroom leadership roles on the Journal’s national desk and global copy desk and was Managing Editor of the Journal’s Asia edition before joining WSJ.com in 2009. She earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism at St. John’s University and holds an MA in English Literature from Columbia University. Christine will continue to report to me.
Please join me in congratulating Christine on this expanded role.
