WSJ digital editor Adam Najberg to step down

The Wall Street Journal's veteran reporter Adam Najberg will leave masthead and Dow Jones at the end of this month after 21 years with the company.

Najberg has been responsible for the digital growth of the paper's English-language and local-language sites, blogs, translation services and videos in Asia.

Telum Media reported that Najberg will take up a Shenzhen-based senior communications role in September.

The 45-year-old is a seasoned journalist and author who has served many news organisations for the past 25 years, including The Washington Post, The Associated Press, ICRT and more recently The Wall Street Journal.

In other changes to its newsroom, Telum also revealed that Dean Napolitano, a senior editor at The Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong and New York for more than 20 years, is now working as a freelance writer based in Hong Kong.
