I subscribe to the print and Audible versions of the Wall Street Journal. Most days, I don't have time to unwrap the WSJ, let alone skim it. So, I make do with the Audible service.
The WSJ Audible subscription is pretty good. Each day there is at least one article that is relevant to me. These are articles that I would read if I was perusing the WSJ in print.
However, the WSJ Audible subscription could be greatly improved by making a two changes.
First, I would like the service to read all of the the "What's News" blurbs from the front page. "What's News" is a good briefing. I also believe this would drive listeners to purchase the print version of the WSJ, if an article that they found compelling was not featured on the audible service.
Second, I would like to hear more Marketplace articles. Finance and Money and Investing are good topics, but charts and graphs are not well suited to audio communication.
If time length is a concern, I recommend adding the above content and removing the editorial. While the editor's opinions are interesting, hard business news and facts are a higher priority for me.
