I am leaving Colorado, where I’ve lived since 1990, for the Miami area to become editor in chief of the South Florida Business Journal.
I’m sad to leave so many great people, but excited about a new opportunity.
American City Business Journals, which owns the publication, has made an impressive transition over the past few years, adding websites and mobile apps to its traditional base of weekly print publications in 40 U.S. cities. It is now firmly positioned as a business news reporting powerhouse in the digital age.
I’m especially pleased to joining this company in South Florida, a vibrant microcosm of the global economy, where billionaires flock to buy real estate and immigrants of more modest means come to chase the American Dream. Telling their stories, as part of a dedicated team of journalists, will be a great adventure.
I will miss writing columns for The Wall Street Journal and Marketwatch. To keep up with my Florida adventures, follow me on Twitter @tellittoal.com and hit the “like” button on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/tellittoal2.
