WSJ launches real-time biz news stream and blog
by Chris Roush
Available for Journal digital subscribers by desktop and as a web app saved to smartphones, the stream brings together the expertise of the Journal’s network of business reporters across the globe.
Anchoring the stream are posts from the new Corporate Intelligence blog, which covers the businesses, industries and companies big and small that are shaping our times. Peering inside board rooms and across industry ecosystems, Corporate Intelligence will produce market-moving news, and analyze, in real-time, what business changes mean for investors, customers, and employees.
“We’re speeding up the highest-quality content of The Wall Street Journal, and we’re delivering it in the way more people are reading today—on their smartphones,” said Dennis K. Berman, the Journal’s Marketplace editor, in a statement.
In conjunction with the Journal’s worldwide reporting staff, the stream and blog will be edited and written by Tom Gara, who recently joined the Journal from the Financial Times, with assistance from Joseph B. White, a Journal reporter based in Detroit who was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of management turmoil at General Motors.
