Cubes: VIP Tour of Dow Jones and the Wall Street Journal

Dow Jones got to keep its home in the Midtown Manhattan News Corporation building after the parent company divorced itself and split into separate print and broadcasting units. The publishing arm, housing the Wall Street Journal, kept the News Corporation name while the broadcast and entertainment part now calls itself 21st Century Fox.

Wendy Bounds,WSJ Editor and host of “Lunch Break,” showed the kids at mediabistroTV that everything’s going to be OK by giving them a tour of the multi-floored heart of Dow Jones.

The guys were greeted by one of the legendary standing receptionists, got as close to a Pulitzer Prize as they’re ever going to get, took a color-toned glimpse into the paper’s past with wall sized silkscreens of old newsroom photos and managed not to end up as gossip fodder on the twitter page of the lobby’s chandelier.

Investors are buying up small stations in anticipation of what the FCC is calling incentive auctions, where broadcasters auction off their airwaves in an effort to free up much needed spectrum for mobile broadband.  The speculators are hoping companies, such as wireless phone carriers looking to meet increasing demand for their services, would pay a hefty price for the added airwaves.

The Wall Street Journal says the gamble is not yet a sure thing:

Much about the auction remains uncertain, however, including the timing. The agency plans to publish its proposed rules for the process sometime this fall, and industry observers say the auction could begin as early as 2014. But the FCC has until September 2022 to conduct the sale and license the airwaves to wireless companies.
