‘Journal’ reorganizes its editorial structure

Published on .

New York—News Corp.’s The Wall Street Journal is reorganizing its editorial structural, which will initially result in the loss of about 50 positions, according to an internal memo written by Dow Jones Editor in Chief Robert Thomson.

The Journal will close its editorial operations in South Brunswick, N.J., (which it opened following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11) and move most positions there to its New York offices. “We will be posting the new editing desk jobs no later than Friday and genuinely encourage all staffers affected by this announcement to apply for these openings in New York,” Thomson wrote in the memo.

He also said that Dow Jones is increasing its overall spending on editorial: “Our new budget includes an ambitious expansion of our Web and international operations, both for the Journal and for [Dow Jones] Newswires, where we are adding 95 journalists over coming months.”
