WSJ publisher: We will expand markets, personal finance and health coverage
Wall Street Journal publisher and Dow Jones & Co. CEO Almar Latour updated readers on the newspaper’s plans for 2022:
Latour writes, “Today we reach more readers around the world than ever. The Journal and its sister publications reach more than 130 million digital users, and millions more when including the Journal’s Apple Edition and readers from other partnerships. Subscriptions stand at more than 3.5 million for the Journal and more than 4.5 million for Dow Jones as a whole, with demand continuing to rise as trusted news becomes an ever rarer commodity. Ultimately, we believe anyone in business should come across Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal a few times a day because trusted information and facts should be available to inform decisions of all kinds—from investing to navigating Covid-19.
“The future of the Journal lies in investing to expand our unique, high-quality journalism, data and analysis, while making sure our current and future customers have access to the news and tools that they want—when, where and how they want it.
“The year ahead will bring expanded markets coverage, more stories on personal finance and health, continued global journalism, more video, more podcasts, more data and expansion into key coverage areas, such as energy transition and sustainability. Dow Jones and the Journal announced planned investments of roughly $1.5 billion in energy-related assets in the past year, the first such expansionary push in nearly two decades, and that will show in our coverage to come.”
