Jack Marshall, a reporter for Digiday, has been hired by The Wall Street Journal to cover advertising and marketing.
Marshall writes, “I’m excited to get started at the Journal, but I’m also sad to be leaving Digiday. It’s a great company run by some of the most talented people in the business, and I’m extremely proud to have contributed to what it’s accomplished. The content and conferences Digiday produces continue to excel, and it has established itself as a leading voice in the digital media world.
“I’d like to thank Nick Friese and the entire team for making Digiday such a fun place to be since I joined in 2011 – particularly those I’ve worked closely with in editorial including Saya Weissman, Josh Sternberg, Clair Lorell, Haniya Rae, Brian Braiker, and more recently John McDermott and Ricardo Bilton.
“I’d especially like to thank Brian Morrissey for all his help and guidance over the past two and a half years — for which I’m more grateful than can be expressed in a blog post — and for letting us publish ridiculous Twitter bio generators and articles about Louis C.K.
“More details to follow on what I’ll be doing at WSJ, but I’ll be at Digiday through March 5th. Until then, you know where to find me.”
