WSJ on Audible Format Changed Drastically
I used to love, love, love listening to the WSJ on Audible every morning. Then in early May 2017 they switched the format from "9 news articles and an op ed" to what I'll call "5 spiffy stories."
I'm switching my audio subscription to the NY Times since my reason for listening was to get a nice overview of the news as a whole.
I'll still read the WSJ on my phone, but I don't enjoy listening to this watered down version of it which largely focuses on the parts of the WSJ print edition that I typically gloss over.
The narrator is still pretty awesome though, very no-nonsense and a good voice for a news broadcast.
No, just the WSJ.
The WSJ on Audible prior to May 2017.
Disappointment in the change in format.
Please go back to the format we had in April 2017 and earlier and I'll switch back.

Since the WSJ removed the "Here's 5 things you need to know" sections, the quality has gone downhill fast. Today's content included an editorial and three lifestyle pieces - absolutely no relevant news.
To the Audible customer service team -- the WSJ is a complimentary part of the Audible offering that used to provide a primer on today's news. I would strongly suggest that you reach out to the WSJ to ask that they continue to do so, as they are devaluing the Audible product. Feel free to reach out to me if you would like to discuss this further.
