WSJ seeks special writer for U.S. news

by

The Wall Street Journal seeks a columnist to analyze the numbers behind the news.

The right columnist will show us how studies or statistics can be misleading or biased. He or she will explain the valid way to look at these stats. The tone of the column can range from sober to funny, depending on the topic. Most importantly, it should cut through spin and cacophony to bring true clarity.

WSJ senior graphics editor named innovator in residence

by

Sarah Slobin, a senior graphics editor at The Wall Street Journal, has been named the first Visiting Ogden Newspapers Innovator in Residence at the Reed School of Journalism at West Virginia.

A story on its website states, “As a visual journalist at The Wall Street Journal, Slobin works with developers, editors and reporters to create interactive stories using data, photography, audio, video and infographics. Since starting at The Wall Street Journal in 2009, Slobin has produced or directed several multimedia projects including Trials, Life in the Euro Zone and The Vote. She was also part of the What They Know series producing database-driven journalism on digital tracking that won the Loeb award for interactive journalism in 2010.

“‘It’s an awesome opportunity,’ Slobin said of joining the School of Journalism team. ‘I love the idea of building a project from the ground up with a group of students who are digital natives. Especially now when the model for consuming media and journalism is entirely turned on its head.’

“Prior to The Wall Street Journal, Slobin was the infographics director for Fortune Magazine working with Fortune.com and CNNMoney. Before Fortune, Slobin spent 15 years at The New York Times – 10 as a graphics editor working on every news desk and as manager of the Business graphics desk.

WSJ hires new City reporter

by

David Enrich of The Wall Street Journal sent out the following staff announcement on Tuesday:

We are thrilled to announce that Ben Wright is joining the Wall Street Journal to cover the City of London. Ben’s beat will encompass the U.K. operations of foreign investment banks, from the giants of Wall Street and Europe to the upstarts of Asia and everything in between.

Ben joins us from Financial News, where he’s worked for the past eight years, until recently as editor. His wealth of industry contacts and banking expertise helped build FN into a must-read newspaper and website for London’s investment-banking industry. Along the way, Ben oversaw a redesign of FN’s print and digital editions, launched a successful iPad app and blog (http://thetally.efinancialnews.com/) and opened a Hong Kong bureau. He also previously worked as editor of special reports for the Wall Street Journal Europe.

Ben describes himself as “ever so slightly obsessed by rugby.” He also sports an intra-company sibling rivalry: On Financial News’s recent London-to-Monte-Carlo charity bike ride, Ben claims that he handily beat his younger brother Jonny, who also works for Dow Jones in London.

Da Costa, ex-Reuters, joining Wall Street Journal

by

Federal Reserve Board reporter Pedro Da Costa, who left Reuters last week, has been hired by The Wall Street Journal.

Da Costa will be part of The Journal’s global central banks team.

Da Costa also spent six years covering the markets for Reuters. He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Chicago and a master’s degree in international relations from the University of California, San Diego.

In 2001, he received a Deadline Club Award for Online Enterprise Reporting from the Society of Professional Journalists’ New York chapter for “The Ties that Bind at the Federal Reserve,” which exposed lucrative leaks from Fed insiders to former staffers in the private sector and led to an official policy change at the central bank.

Not your father’s Wall Street Journal

by

Joe Pompeo of Capital New York writes Thursday about how The Wall Street Journal has changed since it was purchased by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. at the end of 2007.

Pompeo writes, “While its course still steers right as far as the opinion pages are concerned, the editorial integrity of the news report has remained intact. The most significant changes (masthead moves aside) have made the stories shorter, the prose more concise and, above all, the content broader and more appealing to a consumer base that reaches beyond the Journal‘s core readership of Wall Street traders and money wonks.

“The paper has managed this without much of a stoop, courting its general-interest audience by adding more coverage of national and foreign affairs outside the scope of finance, and giving these stories Page One real estate. There’s even a New York metro section that launched in 2010 as a reflection of Murdoch’s ambition to bloody The New York Times in its own backyard.

“But nowhere has the shift been more pronounced than in the metastasizing portfolio of luxury, leisure and lifestyle content that Journal executives might describe as more infectious than a Daft Punk summer jam.

“The enigmatic French dance duo’s cameo at the Innovator Awards, where tastemakers like David Chang, Pharrell Williams and Terry Richardson were also in attendance, was more or less the apotheosis of the Journal‘s newfound sex appeal.”
