When the Los Angeles Newspaper Group (LANG) launched its free-standing “Sunday Business” section Sunday in all eight of its papers, one key feature was “The Wall Street Journal Sunday” supplement.
“The supplement brings an additional national dimension to the historical concentration on local and regional business news that has been the focus of each of the LANG newspapers in their home markets,” according to a LANG release.
Previously, the Los Angeles Daily News was the only LANG title to carry “The Wall Street Journal Sunday” section within a section.
Owned by Denver-based MediaNews Group Inc., LANG’s other papers are the Long Beach Press-Telegram, Pasadena Star-News, Whittier Daily News, San Bernardino Sun, Redlands Daily Facts, San Gabriel Valley Tribune in West Covina, and Inland Valley Daily Bulletin in Ontario.
With the addition of all of LANG, Dow Jones & Co. Inc.’s “The Wall Street Journal Sunday” now appears each weekend in about 70 newspapers with around 10 million copies in circulation, according to E&P calculations.
