An ETF and Mutual Fund Reporter Refocuses Elsewhere

News summary by MFWire's editors

A mutual fund reporter recently switched publications and beats, and his new home also made several other related additions.

Chris Dieterich
Wall Street Journal
Market Maniac Reporter
Chris Dieterich, formerly "Focus on Funds" blogger and "ETF Focus" columnist at Barron's, is returning to the Wall Street Journal, this time as the "market maniac reporter,"Gorkana reports. (Barron's and the WSJ are sister publications within News Corp.) And the WSJ also made several other editorial moves that may be of interest to fundsters.

Meanwhile, there is no word yet on how Dieterich's shoes will be filled at Barron's. Greg Bartalos, editor-in-chief of Barrons.com, tells MFWire that it's still "to-be-determined" who will take over the "Focus on Funds" blog and the "ETF Focus" column. Recent contributors to "Focus on Funds" include reporter Teresa Rivas, staff writer Johanna Bennett, and several others.

At the WSJ, Dieterich isn't the only new face fundsters may want to get to know. Brian Hershberg just became wealth management editor, Lisa Beilfuss became a wealth management group reporter, and Asjylyn Loder joined as an ETF and market structure reporter.

Dieterich, an alumnus of Regis University and the University of Missouri-Columbia, joined Barron's two years ago after working as a markets reporter at the WSJ. He previously worked at Dow Jones Newswires (also part of News Corp) and American Banker.

Hershberg, an alumnus of the College of New Jersey, most recently served as an economic news editor at the WSJ. He joined the paper in 2002 and previously worked with the Courier-Post.

Beilfuss, an alumnus of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, most recently worked on the WSJ's real-time desk. She previously worked at Chopper Trading, Getco, Briefing.com, and Northern Trust.

Loder, an alumnus of Johns Hopkins and NYU, most recently worked as a reporter-at-large at Bloomberg, covering commodity and energy markets. She previously worked at the St. Petersburg Times and the Herald News.
