The Wall Street Journal just announced how they’re going to handle the upcoming Summer Games. The events, which last from July 27 through August 12, will be well covered by each WSJ digital platform and by an additional three pages six days a week in the paper.
The games reporting will be overseen by WSJ’s sports bureau chief, Sam Walker. There will also be over 20 WSJ reporters — London bureau chief Bruce Orwall, senior sports editor Kevin Helliker, sports columnist Jason Gay and more — covering the events as they happen, which is more than double the amount the paper had covering the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.
There will also be Olympics coverage in WSJ’s “stream.” The feed pulls every Olympic article, blog, headline, tweet, video and photo and places them in one, easily-accessable page.
