More job cuts at Marketwatch.com
by Chris Roush
The layoffs are continuing at business news website Marketwatch.com.
Talking Biz News has confirmed that the journalists who have lost their jobs this week include Sydney bureau chief Sarah Turner, biotech reporter Val Kennedy, and Tel Aviv news editor Rob Daniel.
Jonathan Krim, the editor of Marketwatch, is currently visiting its San Francisco bureau and calling people into the office, so the layoffs may not be over.
UPDATE: Talking Biz News learned late Wednesday that Anthony Lazarus, a news editor in San Francisco, has lost his job.
Lazarus was eight-plus years into his stint as a news editor at Marketwatch, working on stories and the site’s front page daily. In addition, he’s written features and videos on Bay Area food, wine and beer, among other subjects.
Before going to Australia, Turner was based in London, covering European markets and business. She previously was a reporter for Dow Jones Newswires.
Kennedy covered the medical beat from Boston. She has worked for The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Dow Jones Newswires and Bridge News. Kennedy holds a B.A. in political science from Bates College and a master’s degree in journalism from Boston University.
Daniel has worked at Bloomberg, the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Previously he also had an eight-year stint working in Israel writing and editing English-language material for businesses there.
Talking Biz News reported last week that business journalists who worked for the Dow Jones & Co. website in Chicago, New York and Washington lost their jobs. Among those cut was media columnist Jon Friedman.
