We always are seeking to strengthen our reporting of the latest financial news. Now, in partnership with

The New York Times

, we are adding an important new layer of coverage.

Through a joint venture with the

Times

, we have built a team of reporters dedicated to covering the key business events of the day as they happen. This is the kind of up-to-the-minute coverage that can help investors get a better handle on what's happening in the stock market. Under the direction of

Jack Lynch

, a

New York Times

editor, the joint venture news team delivers quick hits and tidbits throughout the day. These stories appear in the Breaking News section of our home page, and are free.

The addition of a breaking news team helps strengthen our news and information offering in important ways. It complements the strong features and scoops in our corporate coverage, and it permits us to double- and triple-team important stories with greater authority. Moreover, the joint venture team helps lay more of the news groundwork that makes commentators like

James J. Cramer

,

Herb Greenberg

and

Adam Lashinsky

shine.

We are very excited about this joint venture, and we are pleased to be working in conjunction with a strong news organization like

The New York Times

. Unlike some of the other traditional dead-tree types, the

Times

has displayed boldness in approaching this new medium. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship.

If you've got suggestions about how we can strengthen the breaking-news aspect of our site, please don't hesitate to write. I can be reached at
