The Wall Street Journal names Emma Tucker as its next editor, marking the first woman to lead the paper

New York

The Wall Street Journal on Monday named Emma Tucker as its next editor-in-chief, marking the first time the Rupert Murdoch-owned financial broadsheet will be led by a woman.

Tucker, who currently serves as editor of The Sunday Times, another Murdoch-owned newspaper, will succeed current Journal editor Matt Murray in early February.

Robert Thomson, chief executive of The Journal’s parent company, News Corp, described Tucker as a “brilliant, inspirational editor, with digital nous and the highest standards of integrity.”

“Her global vision and experience will be especially important at a time of tremendous international opportunity for The Wall Street Journal,” Thomson said. “Emma has a deep background in business reporting and a well-earned reputation for driving principle, and she will never knowingly be beaten to a scoop.”

Murray, who has been The Journal’s top editor since the summer of 2018, will help Tucker with the transition until March and then begin a new senior role at News Corp, the company said.

“I look forward to Matt’s astute and wise counsel as he takes on a significant advisory role at News Corp,” Thomson said.

Semafor first reported in November that Murdoch planned to replace Murray with Tucker.
