- The Washington Times - Monday, June 2, 2008

The newspaper will come out six days a week, with an expanded and totally redesigned Sunday product. On Saturdays, we will offer our new e-edition, which looks exactly like your newspaper but appears on your computer screen.

Go to www.washington times.com/signup and follow the directions. You will be e-mailed a link explaining how to access The Washington Times‘ e-edition. Current subscribers will get it for free; others can subscribe at a low annual rate.

The same outstanding news and sports coverage you get now. But because it’s delivered electronically, we can provide even more of it.

The Washington Times’ new Sunday edition will be a unique product in the newspaper industry. A tabloid news-and-features magazine will be wrapped around a traditional broadsheet with the latest news.

The cover story each week will feature exclusive in-depth reporting and photography. Inside will be features that include interviews with top newsmakers, Inside Politics, news from the Middle East Times, books, a point-counterpoint spread called Solutions, a Daybook-style look-ahead on key congressional and national meetings, family, culture and leisure, and a spread named Golf Styles.

Yes. Things like Family Times and Books will be in that group.

The TV guide, color comics, USA Weekend magazine and Relish.

A: It will contain four sections - a traditional news section, sports, Commentary and classified. The front news section will have the traditional front page and contain nation, world and metro news inside.

It will expand to six pages, including Editorial and a groundbreaking new feature by graphic artist Alex Hunter - a full-page color political cartoon.

A revamped A-section reorganizes the news from the traditional Nation and World sections. Another section, named “Plugged In,” will feature an in-depth look at a different area of coverage each day. Sports will be largely unchanged.

Each day of the week will have a different cover theme. On Mondays, Plugged In will be named Marketplace; on Tuesdays, Politics; on Wednesdays, Living; on Thursdays, National Security; on Fridays, Show. Also in this section, each day of the week, there will be an Arts page and a Culture page.

Page A2, previously the Culture, etc. page (which moves into the Plugged In section), will be named “Washington in 5 Minutes.” This page includes briefs of the latest news from the nation’s capital, along with a look at what to watch for that day. Then there will be pages for Nation, Politics, World, Metro, Economy, Commentary and Editorial.

No. We will keep the weekly TV book, which now appears on Sunday, but daily listings will move to the Web site, www.washingtontimes.com.

Civil War history will be included in the Plugged In section on Thursdays as part of a new section called America at War. This will deal with all of America’s wars, but the Civil War will remain an important part of it.

Yes, but it will now appear on the Op-Ed page on Tuesdays and Fridays.
