Impoco to leave Reuters
by Chris Roush
Well-known business journalist Jim Impoco, who has been investigations editor and part of the online editing team at Reuters, is leaving the wire service.
Joe Pompeo of Capital New York writes, “Buried in the announcement was the news that Jim Impoco, a veteran business journalist and one of Freeland’s main deputies on the digital side, will leave Reuters at the end of the month.
“‘I am very grateful to Jim for his excellent work and wish him the very best in his new venture,’ she said.
“Impoco’s departure was a surprise to some. It had been expected that he would be moving away from the digital side to concentrate full-time on the eponymous luxury magazine he lauched for Reuters last year, the third issue of which is expected to debut at the forthcoming World Economic Forum in Davos.
“Reached for comment via email, Impoco, who’s also worked as an editor at The New York Times and the late Portfolio magazine, wouldn’t say where he’s headed, but told Capital: ‘I have nothing but great things to say about Reuters. Chrystia Freeland is a rock star and a friend for life. And I am grateful to [Reuters editor-in-chief] Steve Adler for all the fun opportunities he threw my way. Looking forward to the next challenge.’”
