Press release:

CBS MarketWatch to Launch Retirement Weekly, a New Online Publication for Baby Boomers

Issued by: CBS MarketWatch

Date: Oct. 1, 2003

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 1, 2003--MarketWatch.com, Inc. (Nasdaq:MKTW), a leading multimedia publisher of business news and information, announced today that it will launch Retirement Weekly, an online newsletter to be sold through the Company's flagship business news Web site, CBS MarketWatch. The first edition will appear Oct. 10.

The third paid-subscription product to be launched by MarketWatch this year, Retirement Weekly will focus exclusively on financial issues of concern to baby boomers nearing retirement as well as those already in retirement. It will be edited by Robert Powell III, a noted personal finance journalist whose articles and analysis on retirement planning have been featured on CBS MarketWatch and in The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times and other publications.

"Seventy-seven million baby boomers are heading toward retirement, but changes to laws, regulations and investment practices are happening so fast that many of them are not able to keep up," said Powell. "Retirement Weekly will serve our readers by providing in-depth news and commentary on the latest developments, strategies and products to help them plan their future."

The newsletter will explore all elements of retirement planning including investments, insurance, taxes, health care and estate planning. Features will cover subjects such as how to effectively save for retirement, how changes in Medicare will affect retirees, and how retirees can efficiently manage pension distributions and IRA rollovers and distributions. There will be a "Money Makeover" section each month where subscribers can write in and have their portfolios overhauled by a professional financial advisor.

"As our third paid-newsletter to launch this year, Retirement Weekly further increases our service to the CBS MarketWatch audience of professional and individual investors," said Chairman and CEO, Larry Kramer. "Retirement Weekly follows on the heels of The Calandra Report, an investment letter edited by noted CBS MarketWatch stock columnist Thom Calandra, and The Technical Indicator, a daily detailed analysis for sophisticated traders from leading technical analyst, Michael Ashbaugh."

The initial charter subscription price will be $29 per year, discounted from the regular rate of $59. Retirement Weekly and the Company's other subscription newsletters are available within the "Newsletters & Research" tab on the CBS MarketWatch Web site, and products can be purchased at the following URL: http://cbs.marketwatch.com/commerce/store.asp.
