A report in today’s paper said:
With just five days to go, excitement is growing across the world at a new dawn for Britain’s favourite paper.
And we are making it even more special for YOU, our readers, by including the fab glossy mag in the package every Sunday.
Fabulous – winner of a host of gongs including British Press Award for Supplement of the Year – moves from Saturdays.
Editor Rachel Richardson said:
I’m thrilled Fabulous will be an integral part of the new Sunday package. Our mix of exclusive celebrity interviews and brilliant real-life stories make us a must-read.
The article goes on to claim that yesterday’s announcement that The Sun will launch on Sunday made headlines around the globe – and that even The Sun’s ‘enemies admitted Rupert Murdoch’s bold move was a masterstroke”.
It quoted The Guardian’s media commentator Roy Greenslade ‘grudgingly’saying: “It will surely have his rivals gasping, leaving them little time to prepare. Love him or hate him, you have to admire the chutzpah. What a guy!”
The paper said it was ‘inundated with thousands of calls and messages of goodwill’from readers.
