SmartMoney out of print

NEW YORK, Jun 21, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Dow Jones & Company announced today that SmartMoney, the personal finance magazine from The Wall Street Journal, will make a digital transition that will include the expansion of its digital news team. As part of the transition, the print edition of SmartMoney will cease production this summer, and the magazine's September issue, on newsstands August 14, will be the final issue.

"SmartMoney has led the way in personal finance coverage for 20 years. It has been honored with many awards and provided intelligent, objective analysis and guidance for readers in print and online. It's clear that the volatility of markets and asset classes has increased the need for rapid delivery of personal finance intelligence, so we will be expanding our team and presence on the web," said Robert Thomson, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones & Company and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal. "The team should be extremely proud of what it has achieved and be excited by the prospect of what it will achieve."

In addition to SmartMoney.com, all content and tools from the site will be available on an expanded co-branded personal finance section on MarketWatch.com. This move also extends the digital reach of the SmartMoney brand to MarketWatch's nearly 17 million monthly visitors from SmartMoney.com's 2.5 million monthly visitors.
