WSJ Merges Six Deals Blogs Into MoneyBeat

 The Wall Street Journal launched yet another blog channel on Monday as the paper rounds out the digital offerings that augment its subscription site.

MoneyBeat combines six of the Journal‘s existing blogs — including MarketBeat, The Source, Overheard and all the global Deal Journals –into one hub dedicated to global finance, markets and mergers and acquisitions.

“MoneyBeat is a one-stop shop for everybody interested in finance and markets, no matter where they are around the world,” Gerard Baker, the paper’s managing editor, said in a statement. “With its vast network of journalists and editors, the Journal is uniquely positioned to deliver lively, round-the-clock news and analysis from the U.S., Asia and Europe.”

The site comes as the Journal diversifies its blog offerings, with the launch last November of The Accelerators and Startup Journal, both focused on entrepreneurialism.

At the time, Raju Narisetti, editor-in-chief of the Journal’s Digital Network, called it “the latest iteration in our strategy to create more specialized content for our core audience.”

MoneyBeat is overseen by former Deal Journal and MarketBeat editor Stephen Grocer and anchored by round-the-clock reporting from some of Dow Jones’ reporters and editors in financial hubs like Hong Kong, London and New York.
