18/09/2009

This week, the Wall Street Journal Digital Network announced plans to launch The News Hub - a live, daily, first-of-its-kind online news broadcast to be co-hosted by Darden alumnus, Simon Constable. The News Hub will feature collaboration and expert reporting and analysis presented by The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Dow Jones Newswires, MarketWatch.com and AllThingsD.com. Constable will co-host the afternoon show, which will air as markets close to examine what happened and what those developments mean.

The News Hub now airs weekdays at 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET live from the company's newsroom "hub" in New York, where editors from across Dow Jones work together to coordinate news coverage. The broadcast will be available on WSJ.com, Barrons.com, MarketWatch.com as well as Dow Jones Newswires and will be hosted by and feature Dow Jones' own reporters and editors along with special guests from across a number of industries. The News Hub will be available on-demand following the live broadcasts.

Speaking highly of Constable, among others, Robert Thomson, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones & Company and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal said, "The News Hub showcases our unmatched stable of expert reporting and resources across Dow Jones. Our journalists break more stories than any other news organization, and our analysis is clearly more perceptive, pertinent and prescient."
