There will be a regular weekly column from comedian and BBC Scotland presenter Fred MacAulay

Other regular features will include:

  • 'Seven by Seven', which will answer seven key questions on topical issues

It will also feature coverage of arts, food and drink, books, travel and property.

Editor-in-chief Richard Neville said: "This year is going to be an extraordinary news year for Scotland.  The Stooshie’s editorial team will work hard to bring readers the week’s top stories drawing on a range of coverage from the country’s newspapers, magazines and leading websites.

"The Stooshie taps into the Scottish appetite for debate and presents readers with a succinct summary of the week’s top stories. It gives readers an easily digestible taste of what is causing a ‘Stooshie’ in Scotland.”

Ellis Watson, chief executive at DC Thomson publising, said: "Whilst I am excited about the idea and the initiative, I am really excited about the timing; with the vote for independence, Commonwealth Games, Ryder Cup and all the other extraordinary and dynamic events going on right now, there has never been a better time for The Stooshie.”

The news magazine will comprise 48 pages.  Three full time editorial staff as well as three contributors will work at The Stooshie.
