Business journalism

Business journalism is the branch of journalism that tracks, records, analyses and interprets the economic changes that take place in a society. It could include anything from personal finance, to business at the local market to the malls, to performance of well-known and not-so-well-known companies.

This form of journalism covers news and feature articles about people, places and issues related to the field of business. Almost all general newspapers and magazines, radio and television news channels carry a business segment. But one finds detailed and indepth business journalism in dedicated business or financial publications, radio and television channels.

Business coverage gained prominence in the 1990s, with wider investment in the stock market. The Wall Street Journal is one such example of business journalism, and is amongst the United States of America's top newspapers in terms of both circulation and respect of journalists.
