The Sharp, Focused Newspaper Features the Journal’s Award-Winning Journalism in Two Core Sections
The Wall Street Journal today launched a redesigned newspaper, showcasing the most compelling daily package of business, economic and financial news, complimented by incisive features and analysis. The sharp, focused newspaper delivers the Journal’s award-winning journalism in two core sections.
“The world is hungrier than ever for reliable, objective, accurate journalism,” said Gerard Baker, Editor in Chief, The Wall Street Journal. “The Journal is uniquely fortunate to have the most ambitious and successful readers, all of whom rely on the reporting, insights and analysis that only we can provide. The new editions of the paper ensure that our growing membership gets the news they want and need in the most digestible format possible. Today’s changes mark our dedication to creating a print edition that can stand on sound footing for the foreseeable future while our digital horizons continue to expand.”
THE NEW SECTION A
The first section of the paper, Section A, has evolved into an essential daily read, highlighting the Journal’s agenda-setting reporting. It will continue to offer the most comprehensive and informative coverage of global economics, politics and policy, as well the biggest stories of the day.
Other changes reflect a clearer overall flow of the paper while also making it easier to navigate the must-know news.
The new Section A also includes Opinion columns as well as Life and Arts content, featuring the Journal’s uniquely engaging lifestyle, arts, puzzles, reviews and sports reporting. In the New York area, regional coverage moves into Section A, where it will run Monday through Friday.
THE NEW “BUSINESS & FINANCE”
The Journal is also introducing a Business & Finance section, which is a combination of the former Business & Tech and Money & Investing sections. The new single section spotlights the most detailed and insightful coverage of business news, further building the strength of the Journal’s core coverage.
The Business & Finance section’s highly curated front page combines the most important business and financial news and insights. The daily market summary and analysis moves to the back page, where the Journal’s celebrated Heard on The Street column will continue to run. The quantity of data and deep analysis remains unchanged, but is now presented in a more navigable format with additional graphics and charts. As always, the emphasis will be on exclusive news and thoughtful reporting.
The Journal’s signature Journal Reports still appear on Mondays, with Mansion continuing to run every Friday, making the paper three sections on those days.
The Wall Street Journal’s Weekend Edition will continue on Saturdays with the main news section, Business & Finance, Review and Off Duty, as well as WSJ. Magazine.
“The changes to the paper create a range of new positions and formats for advertisers,” said Trevor Fellows, Global Head of Sales, The Wall Street Journal. “The new Business & Finance section offers clients increased impact, and we know it will deliver.”
