The Wall Street Journal Online has launched a new blog, called “Deal Journal,” bringing the number of blogs offered by the site to 10.
The new blog will be led by Mergers&Acquisitions reporter Dennis Berman and former Bloomberg reporter Dana Cimilluca. It will also incorporate reporting from Wall Street journal correspondents in New York, London and Hong Kong, as well as WSJ.com editors and Dow Jones Newswires private equity reporters.
The site is free for both journal subscribers and non-subscribers. In a press release, the paper billed the blog as “the centerpiece to an expanded arena of deals coverage by the Journal, with additional
community tools, graphics and video to launch in coming months.”
“Deal news itself is quickly commoditized on the Web,” said Berman in a statement. “Where the Journal provides value is our insight, experience and intellect. Our collective observations on a given situation are what make all the difference — and we hope to deliver a bit of humor and entertainment, too.”
