The wait for the new look “Week in Review” section in the Sunday New York Times is over: It will debut June 26th. And like everyone thought, it’s going to be called “Sunday Review.” According to a memo received by Poynter, select members of the press will be getting a sneak preview of it the Wednesday prior to its launch. Here’s a look at the memo:
We’re holding an informal press breakfast next Thursday, June 23 where we will offer a sneak peak at our newest section, Sunday Review. Sunday Review will offer new features and a new way of presenting our finest analytical and opinion writing; it will debut on Sunday, June 26.
We’ll have a prototype of the section on hand and more information to share. Editorial page editor Andy Rosenthal, op-ed editor Trish Hall, executive editor Bill Keller and columnist Frank Bruni will all be there.
There you have it. We can all relax now and get on with our lives. Okay, we’re lying, FishbowlNY really wants to see what the new section looks like, so this is kind of exciting. What can we say? We’re simple people with simple pleasures.
