    The new voice and format that started on 6/13 are major downgrades

    Quality of narration and voice

    yes old ones

    Please bring back the old voice or someone with just like it. And format / topics from the paper are not as useful as before.

    Story
    "Bring back the old format"
    What would have made The Morning Read from The Wall Street Journal, June 18, 2014 better?

    More Content - the new format is short changing major sections/columns.


    What was most disappointing about The Wall Street Journal’s story?

    Missing columns and lead articles from sections of the paper. Now can't use my commute time to make sure that I've got a sufficient scan of the WSJ. Have to add it back to the daily news scan.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Too high pitched than previous narrator.

    "Different speaker"
    Any additional comments?

    In the book "Skill with People", Les Giblin says that we retain 20% of what we Hear (page 9). The book doesn't say if this still occurs when spaces have been removed between words. I appreciate the space between the end of one story and the headline of the next. If I had wanted the words to arrive faster, I would select 2X on the Shuttle.
