Journalism veteran, Joel Dreyfuss, named managing editor of theRoot.com

By Richard Prince
From Journal-isms
(December 1, 2009) Joel Dreyfuss, a journalist and editorial director with more than 30 years' experience in print, broadcast and online publications, Monday was named managing editor of theRoot.com, Publisher Donna Byrd announced.

Dreyfuss, 64, succeeds Danyel Smith, 44, the former editor of Vibe magazine who held the title of executive editor of the Washington-based online publication but stepped down Oct. 22 after just six weeks on the job, citing difficulty with commuting from New York.

"Joel was most recently the editor-in-chief of Red Herring, Inc., where he oversaw all print and Web content," an announcement said. "Prior to that, Joel has held editorial positions at Fortune Magazine, PC Magazine, Black Enterprise magazine, and Urban Box Office, as well as served as USA Today’s New York Bureau Chief, and an on-staff writer at The Washington Post, The AP, and The New York Post, and Bloomberg, LP. Demonstrative of his expertise across all mediums, he’s also worked as a news producer for KPIX and was an on-air reporter for KQED."

Dreyfuss' background in the mainstream news media and in the financial media, together with his experience reporting on the consumer electronics industry can be expected to differentiate the Washington Post Co.-owned Web site from others and from its previous incarnations.
