Wall Street Journal to Launch Book Review

wsj23.jpgFormer Atlantic editor Robert Messenger will helm a brand new pull-out book review section at The Wall Street Journal.

According to the New York Observer, Messenger will edit the new section and supervise web reviews as well. Current books editor Erich Eichman will answer to Messenger as well. An internal memo projected that the section will launch sometime in September.

Check it out: “The book review will be a pull-out section that will be inserted in one of the newly created sections for The Weekend Journal that will launch later this month. It is unclear how many pages will be dedicated to the new book review, but one source said it will be ‘significant.’”
