The Desk has debuted three email newsletters for industry professionals, a move that comes after regular requests from readers who have expressed interest in getting regular updates on the website’s unique brand of business news focused on the technology, media, broadcasting, publishing and telecommunications industries.

At launch, The Desk will offer two newsletters published daily: A morning edition that ships around 8 a.m. Eastern Time (5 a.m. Pacific Time), and an evening edition deployed around 8 p.m. Eastern Time (5 p.m. Pacific Time). A weekly newsletter will also offer a hand-picked selection of the best business news from key verticals from The Desk and other publications, along with unique analysis and commentary on the biggest news, events and announcements of the week.

The newsletters started shipping in early June through a limited test run, with recipients offering feedback on ways to best curate and refine each edition. The product will move into a private beta phase on July 3, with sign-ups limited to professionals who work in the broadcast, streaming, media, technology, telecommunications or government sectors. All editions are free to receive, and include regular breaking news alerts on the most-important stories of the day.

To sign up for one or more editions, send a message from your work or business e-mail account to [email protected] with the subject line “Newsletter subscription.” Indicate which of the editions you would like to receive — morning, evening, weekly or all three — and please provide your name and the email address where you would like your editions sent.

Freelancers or independent contractors who regularly work in any of the covered sectors are also welcome to apply. Those who do not have access to a work or corporate e-mail address should send a request to connect on LinkedIn.

The newsletters are expected to exit the beta testing phase later this year, with a public sign-up period launching shortly thereafter.
