The newsier front-page of the Wall Street Journal has undergone a redesign with the paper adding a sixth column. Credit the eagle eye of WWD‘s Amy Wicks who reports:
Apparently the change has been under consideration by Marcus Brauchli since he took over as managing editor last April.
Media Mob is currently staring at today’s Journal and another from December and the biggest difference is the "What’s News" in the first two columns, which appears a bit more scrunched. The columns for news stories and features are less noticeably crowded, and it doesn’t appear there’s much of a word loss, if any.
