FT launches US edition of FT Edit
The Financial Times has launched a U.S. edition of FT Edit, an app that offers readers eight hand-picked stories every week day.
The launch of the UK edition happened in early 2022.
The purpose of FT Edit is to provide an alternative to endless scrolling, allowing readers time to digest eight important stories selected for them each day.
Caryn Wilson has been appointed U.S. editor of FT Edit and will curate the app daily for an American audience.
“As a journalist, it’s a fascinating challenge,” Wilson said in a statement. “How do you curate eight stories for Americans who most likely haven’t read the FT before? I’m intrigued to see which stories our new American audience engages with and how this evolves over time. It’s a privilege to help introduce a new generation of readers to the FT.”
The app is available for download now in the iOS App Store. FT Edit is free for the first month, then 99 cents for six months, and $4.99 thereafter.
