Matt Murray has been named editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires. Murray succeeds Gerard Baker. Baker, after five-and-a-half years as the paper’s EIC, will become the Journal’s editor-at-large. He is credited with growing the WSJ’s daily circulation by more than one-third, in part, due to its rapid digital expansion.
