Matt Murray is editor-in-chief of the Wall Street Journal.

Today, the paper is the biggest-selling broadsheet in the US, with a print circulation of 900,000 and two million digital subscribers – the most in its history. In this in-depth interview, Matt reflects on his long career, discusses the balancing act of supporting investors while holding businesses to account – and reveals what it’s really like working for Rupert Murdoch.
