Wall Street Journal reporter Jack Marshall, who has covered digital media and marketing for the paper for nearly four years, is returning to Digiday.
Marshall is joining Digiday to lead Digiday+ as its managing director. He was on Digiday’s editorial staff from 2011 to 2014 before leaving to join The Journal.
In his new role, Marshall will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the Digiday+ product and expanding it in order to grow its member base. Digiday+ has over 1,000 members now and produces original research twice a week, a magazine four times a year, a weekly editorial newsletter, Slack town halls and in-person events like our recent live podcast recording at Vox Media.
Marshall will also look to expand its membership model to Digiday Media’s other brands, Glossy and Tearsheet.
“Valuable content is worth paying for,” said Marshall in a statement. “Many publishers are now experimenting with subscription products, but Digiday is uniquely positioned to provide a membership program with truly differentiated content, research, tools and events that will help those across the digital landscape make better decisions every day.”
Marshall was also a reporter for ClickZ.
