WSJ Europe deputy editor departs
Iain Martin, the deputy editor of the Wall Street Journal Europe, has left the paper, reports Roy Greenslade of the Guardian in London.
Greenslade writes, “A spokeswoman said that Martin’s leaving was ‘quite sudden,’ but she was unable to comment further. A second spokeswoman, asked about the reasons for Martin leaving, had not contacted me at the time of writing.
“In his final blog for the paper’s website, on 22 February, he wrote: ‘I am moving on and this blog will no longer be updated. Thank you for taking the time to read me… I’ve had a lot of fun writing here. I hope that occasionally it has been fun to read.’
“He was appointed in September 2009 by the WSJE’s former editor-in-chief, Patience Wheatcroft, who left the paper after being made a Conservative peer.
“Martin, 39, is a former editor of The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday and deputy editor of the Sunday Telegraph. He was regarded as being Wheatcroft’s pal because they had worked harmoniously together at the Sunday Telegraph, when Wheatcroft was its editor.”
