Noted Indian American journalist Raju Narisetti has been named the new managing editor of The Wall Street Journal’s digital network.
In his new job, Narisetti will have oversight of WSJ.com, SmartMoney.com, MarketWatch and the foreign-language editions of WSJ.com, the leading US financial daily announced.
Currently the managing editor for The Washington Post, Narisetti oversaw digital content at Washington Post Co.'s flagship publication.
The move is a return for Narisetti, who started at the Journal in 1994 as a reporter in Pittsburgh and, by 2006, was deputy managing editor of The Wall Street Journal Europe.
He replaces Kevin Delaney, who took a position with the Atlantic Media Co.
"Raju has done remarkable work as the digital czar at the Washington Post, integrating print and online businesses, building a successful website, and developing key relationships with the digerati," said Robert Thomson, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones and managing editor of the Journal.
Narisetti joined the Post in January 2009. Before that, he served as founding editor of India's Mint newspaper, which has an exclusive agreement to publish Journal-branded content in India.
