The e-mail alerts went live on Monday, March 24.
The first edition of "The Afternoon Report" is distributed at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time each business day. It provides subscribers with the latest news since the morning paper. The second edition, which covers the news of the day and the close of the markets, is distributed at 5 p.m.
âWe originally planned to launch the service next month, but we accelerated our efforts after the start of the war, as we realized this would be a useful tool for our readers,â said Bill Grueskin, managing editor of The Wall Street Journal Online, in a statement.
The e-mails will be distributed to Journal subscribers who have opted in for the service.
