Alan Murray on the Future of WSJ and Television

Wall Street Journal deputy managing editor and executive editor, online Alan Murray tells TVNewser the WSJ’s online video effort is already heading in the direction of a “Wall Street Journal Network,” but is not sure if we’ll see a future combination of WSJ and the Fox Business Network, both of which are owned by News Corp.

In addition to giving us his thoughts on the current state of television business news, Murray, who had a three-year stint as an anchor for CNBC, tells us the current TV partnership between that network and Dow Jones “doesn’t benefit either of them much at all” at the moment and it’s not likely at all that we’d see it extend past the 2012 end-date.

This is the third segment of our three-part interview with Murray for mediabistro.com’s Media Beat interview series.
