'Arizona Republic' Redesigns Its Sunday Edition

The Sunday edition of Gannett’s Arizona Republic has been recreated with an eye toward serving a multimedia audience. 

“The goal is to have this newly imagined product work in tandem with our website, azcentral.com, the go-to home of breaking news and live sports coverage,” writes Mike Faller, sports editor, who also announced his retirement after 44 years in journalism. 

Faller adds, “The Sunday newspaper experience will complement all of that by showcasing the expertise of our staff, spending time with stories that both look ahead and celebrate our shared past. It will be full of opinion, strong feature writing and team analysis.”

And, it will be “a Sunday magazine of a sort, a place to spend some time leaning into a topic, or exploring the rich history of Arizona sports.”



The change comes as newspapers increasingly mail their Sunday editions so that they hit on Saturdays. 

This transition has been a long time coming, right?” Fuller asks. “Regular readers of The Republic understand that night events and live coverage is not something the print newspaper can own any longer. And, really, there’s no reason for it, not with our vibrant website and social-media footprint that report in real time everything sports fans are looking for.

The transition took place this week.
