Wall Street Journal unveils professional site for paying customers


Ever since Rupert Murdoch took over The Wall Street Journal, he's been remaking it as more of a general-interest read with ample political coverage and extras like a sports page and a pop-culture blog. But where does that leave all the in-depth industry news and analysis?

In fact, soon there will be more of it than ever -- but it's going to cost you. The Journal announced Wednesday it would launch a premium news site, Wall Street Journal Professional. For $49 a month, subscribers will have access to "scoops, the latest in industry-specific breaking news, and immediate analysis of customers' industry sectors from Dow Jones Newswires, The Wall Street Journal and the rich collection of 17,000 global business and news sources of Dow Jones Factiva."
