WSJ ME lauds new personal finance publication

Wall Street Journal managing editor Gerard Baker sent out the following email about the newspaper’s new personal finance magazine, WSJ. Money:

This weekend, The Wall Street Journal adds yet another thoroughbred to our growing stable of first-class publications.

WSJ Money dissects the heady world of high personal finance, taking our readers though the endlessly fascinating business of getting, spending and investing.  Through profiles, features, columns and interviews, the magazine offers a rich and original take on money.   The inaugural edition out tomorrow, distributed with the weekend edition of the paper, ranges eclectically from a profile of Asia’s richest city to sorry tales of blown inheritance to a mogul’s secrets for hyper-successful entrepreneurship – alongside a host of other compelling features.

Cerebrally stimulating and visually engaging, WSJ Money, which will be published quarterly, is a fine enhancement to our coverage of global finance.  For our unrivaled network of reporters and editors around the world it also presents an opportunity to write high-impact magazine journalism and I eagerly encourage everyone to pitch for upcoming issues.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the creation and launch of the new magazine.  Mike Miller oversaw its development and assembled the team that produced it, drawing on a group of WSJ staffers and talented outsiders.  Jonathan Dahl steered the project skillfully to publication.  Tomaso Capuano supplied his customary visual flair.

Our latest product continues in the best traditions of Journal journalism.  It brings our world-beating reporting to an ever-widening audience, in print and online, and, as with everything else we do, it reinforces our status as the world’s indispensable newspaper.
