The Guardian is to relaunch its weekly newsprint edition as a news magazine and increase its distribution.
The publication has a circulation of about 42,000 worldwide, of which 32,000 are subscribers and about 10,000 newsstand sales.
As part of the relaunch, the magazine will be available on more newsstands in Australia and at more than 120 WHSmith stores in British railway stations and airports. It will continue to be sold by a number of independent retailers in the US.
“The new-look Guardian Weekly has been beautifully redesigned as a modern weekly news magazine to meet the growing demand for Guardian journalism across the world,” said Katharine Viner, the editor-in-chief of Guardian News and Media.
“It will continue to offer the best reporting, opinion and features from the Guardian, Observer, theguardian.com and our international editions in the US and Australia, giving our readers more ways to engage with and support Guardian journalism.”
