Berkeley j-school dean to be named this week

A Romenesko tipster says the committee looking for a new Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism dean invited the four finalists to meet the community and give presentations last month. They are:

Ron Elving, NPR senior Washington editor
Jim Schachter, New York Times associate managing editor
Ted Conover, NYU professor and author
Ed Wasserman, Washington and Lee University professor

I’m told that Berkeley will announce the new journalism dean this week. I asked the school about the search last week and never got a response.

UPDATE: Jim Schachter says he’s no longer involved in the search. “I’ve concluded that I want to stay focused on doing journalism, and expect to have many opportunities along the way to share what I know about the craft,” he writes in an email.
