The Wall Street Journal has created a hub-and-spoke system to help drive towards great journalism. The Journal’s team of strategy editors are embedded with each coverage area but tightly connected with the newsroom’s centralized news strategy. In this session, they will discuss news projects the strategy editors have carried out in the last six months with our coverage editors and how the strategy editors are transforming practices on the ground level around SEO, tagging, visuals and story planning.
