Herb Greenberg Leaves Marketwatch

I haven't posted on this yet because I've been almost in denial, but it's true: Herb Greenberg is leaving Marketwatch. The website's loss is a gain for financial analysis, as Herb will be starting up his own buy-side analysis firm.

Here's a tribute from Floyd Norris of the New York Times, entitled "A Loss For Journalism," which it surely is. Herb was one of the few journalists who delved into the financials of companies, and he will be sorely missed. So it's, well.... not quite the loss for journalism that it could have been.

UPDATE: I just clarified this item (and changed the title), as I am told that Herb will be staying on at CNBC.
