Business journalist and author James Stewart is leaving Dow Jones to become a New York Times business columnist.
Stewart will succeed Joe Nocera, who left the business desk to become an op-ed writer for the Times. Stewart's column will appear on Saturdays. In order to take the job, Stewart is walking away from the company that has been his home for the past 27 years in Dow Jones. "I just think the Times is a great institution," he said.
