Mullin: Daily and Sunday Independent titles will not merge

Independent on Sunday editor John Mullin has said that although there will be some integration between his paper the daily in the latest cost cuts at Independent News & Media, the two papers will not be merged.

Earlier this week the Independent News & Media announced it would be axing 90 jobs, including 60 journalists, from the two papers.

Mullin told Media Guardian said: ‘As part of the cost-cutting review, there will be some integration between the Independent and the Independent on Sunday but Independent on Sunday will remain a distinct editorial voice with a distinct staff.”

“It is of course a very difficult situation that we find ourselves in but I fervently believe in the Independent and the Independent on Sunday and what we are fighting for.”v
