Joel Dreyfuss, named managing editor of theRoot.com
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.
