Radical plans to turn a regional Sunday newspaper into a news magazine are being considered by publishing bosses in Glasgow.
It is understood that the Sunday Herald could be relaunched in magazine format from 9 January and could even be renamed the New Sunday Herald.
According to one report, the multi-section newspaper is set to be turned into one magazine-style publication designed to become ‘Scotland’s news magazine’ and printed on high-quality paper.
Publishers at the Sunday Herald have not commented on speculation about the possible changes, which emerged on allmediascotland.com.
The current plans may mean a move to an A4-size current affairs magazine format.
According to the latest ABC figures, the circulation of the Sunday Herald was 41,464 in November, down 3.96pc year on year.
