WSJ.com offering free, live video on Tuesday
Although News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch, who now owns The Wall Street Journal, has said that most of its web content will remain behind a pay wall, the paper is offering free, live video online on Tuesday for the first time.
The paper will offer free,Â live video during its coverage of the Super Tuesday primaries.Â The effort marks the first time WSJ.com will offer live video on the site.
Reporting live from the Journal’s New York City headquarters, Alan Murray, executive editor of WSJ.com, and Jerry Seib, Capital Journal columnist and assistant managing editor for The Journal, will anchorÂ the site’s hour-long video coverageÂ beginning tonightÂ at 8 p.m. EST.
Users will be able to access the free video directly from the WSJ.com home page as well as via a link from MarketWatch.com.
Discussing key issues, key states and pollÂ results, Murray and Seib will conduct live, in-studio interviews withÂ Bob Hormats, vice chairman of Goldman Sachs, and Professor Alain L. Sanders, Saint Peter’s College Department of Political Science, among others.
In addition, Journal and MarketWatchÂ reporters will offer video packages fromÂ other bureaus in the U.S. as well as internationally. Out of New York, the Journal’s Li Yuan will discuss Asia’s view of U.S.Â politics.Â In addition, WSJ.com will continue toÂ offer video clipsÂ of election coverageÂ from Fox News Channel.
