WSJ Online announces e-mail alerts

Published on .

New York--The Wall Street Journal Online announced Thursday that it has launched "The Afternoon Report," a twice-daily e-mail alert containing summaries of top news from around the world.

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.

“We 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,” 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.
