Two of The Wall Street Journal’s top editors will leave the publication, its new editor in chief, Emma Tucker, said on Thursday.
In an email to the staff, Ms. Tucker said that Neal Lipschutz and Jason Anders, both deputy editors in chief, would depart “after many years of distinguished service.”
“A new deputy editor will be announced in due course,” Ms. Tucker wrote.
Mr. Lipschutz, who has spent 41 years at Dow Jones and The Journal, said in an email to his colleagues on Thursday that “the time has come for me to move on to new things.” He was previously a top editor for the Dow Jones newswires and had been a deputy editor in chief since 2019.
Mr. Anders has worked at The Journal for more than 25 years and was one of the organization’s first digital reporters. He was promoted to deputy editor in chief in 2022. He wrote in an email to colleagues on Thursday that he was at home with Covid but “I’ll look forward to saying farewell in person over the next couple of weeks.”
