Sunday Telegraph launches two titles

The Sunday Telegraph is launching two magazines as part of an overhaul planned for next month designed to pose more of a challenge to The Sunday Times.

The Sunday Telegraph's new editor, Sarah Sands, has been working on a redesign of the paper that includes the launch of a women's magazine called Grace, to rival The Sunday Times Style magazine.

The Sunday Telegraph is also repackaging its entertainment coverage as a magazine called Seven. This will include TV and film listings, which currently appear as a standalone guide, and arts, music and gadgets coverage.

The redesigned paper will appear from 6 November. The Sunday Telegraph has presented it to media agencies.

Sands has moved quickly to make changes at The Sunday Telegraph since replacing Dominic Lawson in June. There were rumours that she would take the paper compact, but it is believed the main news section will remain broadsheet.

The Sunday Telegraph's September circulation was 689,213, down 1.8 per cent year on year.
