Media observers already are noticing the changes in a Rupert Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal -- a British editor for the glossy magazine launch, talk of a sports section, a move to Midtown. Now word around the Journal newsroom is that a prototype is being developed for a culture section, possibly to run weekly. The project is in the very early development stages, and a spokesman for The Journal declined comment Tuesday.
Former House & Garden editor in chief Dominique Browning, who is said to be overseeing the prototype, confirmed she was consulting at The Journal but said she could not discuss further details. Sources said she was holding meetings internally to brainstorm for the section.
