WSJ Nears 1 Million Digital Subscriptions

So close.

The Wall Street Journal is closing in on landmark number: One million digital-only subscribers.

In its latest earnings report, the Journal said it now boasts 948,000 digital subscriptions, an uptick of 25 percent compared to last year.

While Journal staffers should be proud of that number, the paper still lags behind crosstown rival The New York Times. The Times’ latest report showed it had more than 1.4 million digital subscribers.
