Ms. Barry could not be immediately reached, and a Dow Jones spokesman said he hadn't heard the news.

She has been the top ad-sales executive, first under former Publisher Karen House and then under current Publisher L. Gordon Crovitz, since spring of 2005. Her time in the post saw a reorganization of the paper's ad-sales teams across the country, the launch of a Saturday edition, the introduction of ad space on the Journal's front page and the transition to the new, smaller-format Journal on Jan. 2.
