The Times unveils a major revamp of its Saturday edition this weekend.
Changes include a new 24-page sport supplement, a 14 page broadsheet Saturday Review section which covers arts and books and a new pocket-size listings guide called Playlist – which is the same size as The Guardian’s The Guide.
The Saturday edition of The Times is edited by Eleanor Mills.
Times editor James Harding said: “We have redesigned The Saturday Times to give people the best possible newspaper for the weekend. We already boast the most interesting columnists on a Saturday, from Matthew Parris to Kate Muir to Giles Coren, and we have the biggest network of correspondents covering world affairs and a reputation for the most authoritative coverage of news from politics to business, education to science.
“The Times will now offer the most enjoyable, the most illuminating and the most useful package of papers on a Saturda.
“There will be a separate sport section; Saturday Review, a broadsheet paper giving more coverage of arts, books and ideas; Weekend, which will delight and inspire people with its pages on food and drink, body and soul, outdoor adventures and country pursuits and the world of travel; an expanded Money section, to provide people with our award-winning coverage of personal finance; the Magazine, a colour supplement that will be stylish, lustrous and surprising; and Playlist, a handy TV & radio listings guide that will also hook people into what is happening on stage, on screen and in the world of games, gadgets and online entertainment.
“And, without giving too much away, there’s good news for the lovers of the best crossword in the world..”
