The new broadsheet editions will include many of the Journal’s signature hallmark features, including ‘What’s News,’ Business & Tech., Money & Investing, Opinion, Mansion and Off Duty, along with regionally focused content. The content will be mirrored in the expanded regional iPad and Android editions.
