TheStreet, Inc. (Nasdaq: TST) announced that managing editor Tara Murphy has been promoted to Editor-in-Chief. In this expanded role, Murphy will lead editorial operations for the company's portfolio of institutional and consumer finance brands and oversee the newsroom's global expansion as well as mobile, video and social strategies.
"In just a few months, Tara has combined three disparate newsrooms into a single 24-7 digital powerhouse, with reporters in Europe, Asia and across the U.S.," said David Callaway, CEO of TheStreet, Inc. "She is a transformational editor coming to us at just the right time as we combine our news products into an elite financial news and data journalism operation."
TheStreet's founder, author, and host of CNBC's Mad Money, Jim Cramer, said, "Tara has established herself as one of the foremost business editors of our era. Her grasp of news and analysis, knowledge of what moves a stock and why, and perception of what daily events will propel the markets is unparalleled. She's simply the best."
Prior to joining TheStreet, Murphy was the president of KATYA Inc., an online women's apparel company. She had previously served as director of business development at Hearst Digital Media as well as managing editor of Cosmopolitan.com. Before Hearst, she spent six years at Forbes, where she served as senior anchor of the Forbes.com Video Network. Tara was formerly a staff reporter at TheStreet.com, and she began her professional career in U.S. institutional equity sales at Merrill Lynch in New York.
"The opportunity to lead TheStreet's editorial operations at this exciting time in its evolution is truly an honor," Murphy said. "It is a storied brand in financial news and information that is expanding to become the leading digital platform for investors. For me, this is a very happy return to a newsroom I always loved."
Murphy will report to Callaway and be based in TheStreet, Inc.'s New York office.
