NEW YORK, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dow Jones today announced several new channels on Snapchat’s Discover produced by brands MarketWatch, Barron’s and WSJ Opinion.
MarketWatch and Barron’s have joined The Wall Street Journal in publishing daily stories on Snapchat with a new format called Dynamic Stories.

Episodes examine questions around standardized test requirements, the future of the metaverse, the wealth gap in America and more. This series will publish new episodes each week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Money Matters by MarketWatch answers viewers’ pressing financial questions with tips, tricks and money hacks to help them get ahead. Plus, MarketWatch will feature real-world scenarios from people who have done extraordinary things with their money from paying off debt to retiring early and everything in between.
