Torstar announced Monday that it has reached a deal with The Wall Street Journal to bring the “Journal’s award-winning business news and analysis” to Canada.
Beginning June 12, 2018 Torstar dailies and websites across Canada will start publishing select articles from The Wall Street Journal.
Additionally, the Toronto Star will launch Star Business Journal, a new initiative with both print and online editions featuring articles on business, the economy, technology and markets from The Wall Street Journal.
“This collaboration with The Wall Street Journal is an important element in Torstar’s overall transformation initiative – with a lot more to come,” said John Boynton, president and chief executive officer of Torstar.
The Star Business Journal print edition will carry content from The Wall Street Journal every day except Sunday, with expanded coverage offered every Wednesday.
Also, other Torstar properties, including The Hamilton Spectator, Waterloo Region Record, St. Catharines Standard, Niagara Falls Review, Welland Tribune, Peterborough Examiner and StarMetro urban news sources in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Halifax and Toronto will soon carry content from The Wall Street Journal as well.
