WSJ’s Baker tells readers about new format
Wall Street Journal editor Gerard Baker wrote the following to readers about the paper’s redesign:
The new format concentrates our paper into two core sections. Starting today, the front section will include U.S. and World News, features and Opinion columns. It’s your indispensable daily read. Appearing in this section every day, Life & Arts brings together the content previously found in Personal Journal and Arena. That means you can enjoy our eclectic and engaging arts, workplace, lifestyle and sports coverage, plus our columnists and popular crossword puzzle all week.
The Business & Finance section strengthens our core coverage. You can expect the same amount of data and the same breadth and depth of reporting and analysis. Technology continues to be a key area of coverage, found within Business & Finance. You will also see, within the section, more clearly defined columns for companies, equities, bonds, commodities, currencies and financial institutions and other categories of business news. Our popular markets analysis now appears with our celebrated Heard on the Street column. You can also find markets data and round-the-clock analysis at WSJ.com and through our apps.
As before, Journal Reports will appear on select Mondays and Mansion on Fridays, so the edition will comprise three sections on those days. The Weekend edition will remain a leisurely read, with multiple sections, including Review, Off Duty and WSJ. Magazine, joining the front section and Business & Finance.
