UC-Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism has named Ed Wasserman as its new dean. He has been the Knight professor of journalism ethics at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va.
Tom Goldstein, who has served as interim dean of the J-school since Neil Henry resigned last August, will remain in that position until Jan. 1 when Wasserman takes over.
Wasserman was one of four finalists for the position. BayCitizen.org says the others were Ron Elving, NPR’s senior Washington editor; writer Ted Conover; and Jim Schachter, associate managing editor at The New York Times.
