Former CNBC anchor Nicole Lapin, who left the business network last year to launch her own media company, has started a newsletter and website called Decoding The Wall Street Journal.

The site and subscription-only newsletter will tackle and interpret money-related topics for individuals interested in financial news and guidance.

Brian Sozzi will act as editor of the newsletter. He is also the chief business officer of Lapin’s company, Nothing But Gold Productions.

The newsletter will provide financial news, tips and advice, such as finance terms, market functions and stock picks, in plain English to its subscribers. As well as, congregate and break down the daily news headlines. Members have the choice of subscribing to two different tiers of the newsletter, “Gumshoe” (beginner) for $9 a month and “Sleuth” (expert) for $49 a month, with an additional add-on service called “Deputy Chief Decoder” for $19 a month, which provides added exclusive financial content.

Decoding The WSJ will also deliver financial tips and advice on its Facebook and Twitter pages and the “decoded” information will be posted real-time as the headlines and stories of the day break.

“We’re extremely excited for NBG’s second enterprise, Decoding The Wall Street Journal,” said Lapin in a statement. “Decoding The WSJ will serve as a great resource for individuals looking for financial information and counsel. Even the most finance-savvy person.”

Sozzi became chief business officer in October 2011. Previously, Sozzi was a senior research analyst at Wall Street Strategies Inc., an independent stock research company, where he worked for eight years.
