UK: for 216 years (and not one more), The Times has been published as a broadsheet
The Times newspaper will be printed in tabloid form only from Monday after more than 200 years as a broadsheet, it has been announced. The decision to scrap its broadsheet edition was made after a successful trial run of the tabloid version. Times editor Robert Thomson said: "The launch of the compact has transformed the fortunes of the newspaper." Since publishing a broadsheet and tabloid version, sales of the paper have gone up by 4.5%.
