Mary Pilon, a writer for the Money & Investing section of The Wall Street Journal, is leaving the business newspaper for a job at The New York Times.

Pilon blogs that she will be a sports reporter at the Times.

She writes, “For over three years, I’ve worked with an incredible team of journalists at The Wall Street Journal. Through many a crisis, my colleagues here have proven to be completely unflappable, professional and passionate about great reporting. It’s a dynamite newsroom full of incredible people.

“I’m incredibly excited about the new role at the NYT and look forward to hearing everyone’s rants and raves about the wide world of sports.”

Pilon took over the Journal’s coverage of the asset management industry back in February.

Pilon made a name for herself writing about movie days at the NYSE, blimps and Jane Austen. She produced stories on short-sellers trying to influence federal policy on for-profit colleges, on how the recession shut down the bank of mom and dad, and, with Jason Zweig, on how financial advisers are using new tricks to dupe investors.
