WSJ, AllThingsD to dissolve partnership
New York—The Wall Street Journal and tech news blog AllThingsD have decided not to renew their partnership for 2014, according to a statement from Gerard Baker, editor in chief of Dow Jones and managing editor of the Journal.
As part of the separation, Walt Mossberg, co-executive editor of AllThingsD, will leave his position as a technology columnist with the Journal at the end of this year.
“We plan to embark on a major global expansion of our technology coverage, which will include adding 20 reviewers, bloggers, visual journalists, editors and reporters covering digital,” Baker said in the statement.
In a post on AllThingsD yesterday, Mossberg and Co-executive Editor Kara Swisher wrote: “First of all, this site will operate just like it does now until year's end. Then, starting January 1, 2014, we will still be Web-siting and conference-producing and much more, albeit under a new corporate structure with new partners and investors.”
