The Times ends 15 Dec
The final print edition of The Times will be published on Friday, 15 December 2017, with the new digital edition, Times Select, launching in early 2018. The latter will continue to deliver news, analysis and opinion via www.timeslive.co.za, www.sundaytimes.co.za, and the Sunday Times app.
Times Select will be included in all Sunday Times subscription packages at no extra cost. Sunday Times subscribers, who previously received The Times print edition as a benefit, will receive the daily Times Select as a standard part of their subscription packages. It will also be offered to non-subscribers of the Sunday Times on a subscription basis.
“Our goal is to bring the feisty spirit and unique voice of The Times in print to Times Select. For example, our leading columnists like Justice Malala, Jonathan Jansen, Tom Eaton and Darrel Bristow-Bovey will all continue with us in our new home. We promise that the change of medium will not change the award-winning journalism that lies at the heart of The Times. In fact, we intend to produce more of it,” says Andrew Trench, The Times editor and Tiso Blackstar Group group digital editor.
