The Mail on Sunday main section is all about live news. As always, we'll ensure our six million readers are entertained and informed, keeping them in tune with everything they need to know about current events and the agenda for the coming week.
As you would expect, news heads up the paper, examining the stories of the moment with our usual incisive approach. Our investigations team, led by Dennis Rice, are at the forefront of probing journalism; distinguished foreign correspondent Barbara Jones sends cutting edge stories from the world’s troublespots and every week we feature regular guest columns from the country’s top thinkers such as broadcasters Jon Snow, John Humphreys and politician Dominic Lawson. Top-flight columnists Peter Hitchens and Suzanne Moore offer their views from both sides of the political spectrum.
It has always been The Mail on Sunday’s aim to provide authoritative and accessible financial information to a wide audience. And now, our business and finance content has moved back into the main newspaper to sit within the news environment. Our City and business section already has a strong reputation for getting to the root of the real story and now, with longer deadlines, we can get even closer to the heart of the Square Mile.
We also focus on the constantly changing world of individual finance with a new emphasis on wealth management. The Financial Mail brand is already well-established as a major player in the marketplace, renowned for topical and campaigning editorial and we intend to continue to build upon this good reputation.
Our digital division publishes Thisismoney.co.uk, the UK’s leading financial news and advice website.
At the back of the main newspaper we have that most important of sections for our many male readers – Sportsmail. Since the launch of our Football on Sunday pull-out, Sportsmail has been able to devote more space to the nation’s other favourite sports, with occasional columns from cricketer Steve Harmison, rugby’s Mike Tindall, John Lloyd on tennis and Sam Torrance on golf and regular exclusives, most recently from England rugby stars Jason Robinson and Mike Catt.
Plus, every week, incisive thoughts and reports from our own award-winning writers, including Chief Sportswriter, Patrick Collins, voted 2007 Sports Columnist of the year by the British Sports Journalists’ Association and Chief Football Writer, Ian Ridley, who took the Sports Journalist of the Year prize at the 2007 British Press Awards. Plus award-winning photography from Mark Pain and Dave Shopland, voted Sports Photographer of the Year at the 2007 Picture Editors' Awards
Our full-colour Football on Sunday section feeds our readers’ passion for the ‘beautiful game’.
A separately numbered pull-out from the centre of the main newspaper, the section offers readers match reports on all of Saturday's Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two fixtures and previews of the coming week's games. Incisive comment is on hand from our top team of football writers, including 2007 Sports Journalist of the Year, Ian Ridley; 2006 Sports Reporter of the Year, Rob Draper and well-known pundit, Bob Cass. Plus a weekly column from football legend, Sir Bobby Robson, recently honoured by the BBC with a Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition we feature regular interviews with the game’s leading personalities and book serialisations.
Plus a full spread of results to keep even the most dedicated fan up to date.
