In conjunction with this move, Dow Jones said that on Nov. 16 it will cease the printing and distribution of its U.S. edition in London. All subscribers will be offered replacement subscriptions to the European print and online editions.
“We’re focusing all our efforts and investments on the European edition so it becomes the sole voice of The Wall Street Journal in Europe,” Publisher Andrew Langhoff said in a statement.
The revamped newspaper will include new analysis features, new columnists, a new front page design and more color. It will also introduce a series of new, eight-page special reports with a European focus.
“We’re leveraging our unrivalled global resources—including an integrated news staff of more than 400 in Europe alone—to deliver our unique content in a way that is more in tune with our audience,” Patience Wheatcroft, editor in chief of The Wall Street Journal in Europe, said in a statement.
