Multimedia journalist to join Wall Street Journal

The Globe and Mail will soon lose its multimedia editor, as Stuart A. Thompson prepares to depart for a role with the Wall Street Journal.

"Well, it's official. Really excited to announce I'll be joining the @WSJ in New York as a senior interactive graphics editor," Thompson shared, later elaborating, "It's very tough for me because I love the @globeandmail. It's a great time to be working in this newsroom. I'll miss it so much."

"Sad that the incredibly talented @stuartathompson is leaving the Globe," lamented colleague and reporter Caroline Alphonso. "Who will answer my spreadsheet Q's now (and not shake their head)?"

"My heart just sank," assistant editor Claire Neary echoed similar sentiments. "Very sad for me, but very happy for @stuartathompson, leaving@globeandmail for @WSJ in New York. Lucky them!

Plus, the Journal's Twitter account has already added him to its "WSJ Staff list," which Thompson twitpic'd and tweeted, "I guess it just got Twitter-official."
