The Wall Street Journal has made another move to beef up its Washington bureau. Gorkana, excerpted by Fishbowl DC, reports:
Joe White, Detroit Bureau Chief at The Wall Street Journal, will be joining the Washington Bureau as a Senior Editor, overseeing a team of reporters covering energy, the environment, transportation and certain other areas of regulation. He joins Jonathan Kaufman who has also recently been made Senior Editor at the bureau.
Other recent recruits to The Journal‘s Washington coverage include new bureau chief John Bussey, as well as editor Gary Putka. However, last week the paper lost star political writer John Harwod to The Times.
