Wall StreetTwo radio networks – Wall Street Journal Radio and MarketWatch Radio, will be turned off at years end as parent Dow Jones focuses on cost cutting.

According to reports, DJ CEO William Lewis believes that in order to do a better job with its core businesses, it must cut a number of businesses beyond its core.

The company’s Sunday Journal is also shutting down. The company will focus its efforts on its contribution to WSJ Weekend.

DJ isn’t getting out of the audio business entirely. It will be working to increase its presence in the digital audio universe.
