John Witherow rules out integration of Times titles

In a rare interview, Sunday Times editor John Witherow has ruled out integration with the daily title – as the Telegraph and Guardian titles have done.

He said: “We will remain separate entities with separate staff.”

When asked if he was like King Canute on this issue, he says: “I wouldn’t use that. King Canute didn’t stop the waves.”

Witherow also reveals that he still gets a weekly call from proprietor Rupert Murdoch on a Saturday evening and that “generally Sundays on the news front are not as strong as they were”.
