In a press release distributed today, The Wall Street Journal announced that it would bring its WSJ Live content on-demand to a dedicated YouTube channel. Previously available through iPad and Internet TV devices, WSJ Live “ brings influencers and decision-makers live news and on-demand video directly from 2000+ reporters across the globe.” The new YouTube channel will host replays of WSJ live content immediately following airing.
The launch also coincides with a new lifestyle program, “Off Duty,” with content presented daily based on the Journal’s Saturday paper, WSJ Weekend. Airing daily at 6 p.m. ET, “Off Duty” will be hosted by reporter Wendy Bounds, and according to the press release, “will bring to life many of its namesake’s features, as well as other culture coverage from the Journal – from food to fashion, music and movies, travel to tech.”
