WSJ adds reporter on media, ads beat

Mar 18, 2014

Steven Perlberg has left his position as Business Insider's markets and finance reporter for a reporting role with The Wall Street Journal. In his new WSJ position, Perlberg is charged with covering digital media, marketing and advertising.

"Whoa if me," he playfully responded on Twitter to a TalkingBizNews tweet about the move, before tweeting more seriously, "I will miss BI a lot, with particularly big shout-outs to 3 terrific editors: @bySamRo @lopezlinette and@TheStalwart. Was a pleasure."

"I'm at that point in my life where I have friends who have articles written about their job change @perlberg," a pal tweeted, adding, "If I changed jobs, I would just get a text with an incorrectly used emoji from my mother."

Perlberg humbly replied, "you should get cooler friends."

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
