Clare AnsberryWall Street Journal managing editor Gerard Baker sent out the following announcement on Wednesday:

Today we are very pleased to launch a new column online and in print by our own Clare Ansberry. Turning Points will bring Clare’s peerless reporting, compassion and humor to the moments that shape our lives in both momentous and subtle ways. Today’s debut – on how we narrow our circle of friends as we grow into adulthood—showcases Clare’s intimate reporting and personal wisdom. We expect the column to drive viral discussions about topics that touch the human dimensions of our activities on our digital platforms and engage readers of the print paper. We’re delighted to have Clare taking on this ambitious and broad assignment. The column will run in Personal Journal.

Clare joined the journal’s Cleveland bureau when there was such a thing and moved to Pittsburgh shortly thereafter as a beat reporter covering steel and heavy industry. For the last 20 years and through a period of great change in the region and in the manufacturing sector her team covered, she has been the bureau chief, working with small and talented groups and writing about issues facing the aged and disabled, along with, among other things, aheds about bingo advice columnists. A graduate of St. Francis University, she is the author of “The Women of Troy Hill” and co-author of “Comes the Peace: My Journey to Forgiveness.”

Please join me in congratulating Clare and wish her the best on this exciting new endeavor.
