WSJ launches new weekend section Exchange
Wall Street Journal editor in chief Gerard Baker wrote about the paper’s new weekend section.
Baker writes, “We know the weekend is an opportunity to deepen our bond with readers, who experience The Wall Street Journal in a different way: deeper, more wide-ranging, more for pleasure than obligation. Since 2010, we’ve met that need with our popular Review and Off Duty sections.
“Now we are moving our core subject matter, business and finance, into that weekend mode. We’re unveiling a new section called Exchange, with powerful visual presentation, addictive recurring features, agenda-setting regular columnists, and deep reporting that illuminates the behind-the-scenes stories and people of the week’s biggest business and finance news.
“At the same time, we are committed to our principal mission of covering the news. You’ll continue to see national and international news in our A section, and business and finance news in our new Exchange section. While we’re expanding our business coverage in Exchange, we aren’t making any cuts to the depth, range or quantity of news we offer on Saturday.”
