The Sunday Correspondent was a short-lived British weekly national broadsheet newspaper. Launched on 17 September 1989, it ceased publication on 25 November 1990. It was edited by Peter Cole.
On launching, the paper billed itself as the first new quality Sunday title for 28 years (since the launch of The Sunday Telegraph in 1961). By the time it folded just over a year later, it was attempting to position itself as Britain's first quality tabloid. Underfunding, a perceived lack of glamour and personality, and the launch of The Independent on Sunday in January 1990 were all likely factors in its demise. The Guardian journalists Jonathan Freedland and Luke Harding, the BBC's business editor Robert Peston and art critic Andrew Graham Dixon all started their national careers on the title.
One of the features in the Correspondent was Pass Notes, which was taken up by The Guardian in 1992, where it has remained ever since.
Famous quotes containing the word sunday:
“Roosevelt could always keep ahead with his work, but I cannot do it, and I know it is a grievous fault, but it is too late to remedy it. The country must take me as it found me. Wasnt it your mother who had a servant girl who said it was no use for her to try to hurry, that she was a Sunday chil and no Sunday chil could hurry? I dont think I am a Sunday child, but I ought to have been; then I would have had an excuse for always being late.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
