The Wall Street Journal has expanded its video programming from Asia with the launch of “Asia Today,” a live show featuring the latest news and developments in Asia.
Airing weekdays at 6:30 a.m. ET, “Asia Today” will provide the Journal’s audience with insight and analysis on the day’s leading business, financial and general news stories, in addition to coverage of breaking news and developments.
“Global business and investment decisions are increasingly driven by political, economic and social developments in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Almar Latour, Asia editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires, in a statement. “With the launch of Asia Today we can deliver authoritative video summaries of the latest and most important stories at the start of the East-coast day.”
Segments will be broadcast live and then available on demand via WSJ.com and on WSJ Live, the Journal’s video app for iPads, iPhones and Internet-connected televisions.
Produced and hosted by Deborah Kan from the Journal’s Hong Kong bureau, “Asia Today” will feature commentary from Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires editors and reporters spanning the Asia-Pacific region, including from bureaus in Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Jakarta, Mumbai, New Delhi and Sydney, among other major cities.
