Its much heralded announcement came as expected today.The Sunday will consist of four sections and three of the magazines are being axed with only the food monthly surviving.
The four supplements are news, sport, an expanded Review section and the Observer magazine with business and finance moving into the news section and travel moving to the magazine.
According to Guardian media
A core editorial staff will continue to work solely for the Observer. Other Observer journalists will be integrated into the editorial teams that work across the Sunday paper, GNM's other title, the Guardian, and its website network, guardian.co.uk, which includes MediaGuardian.co.uk.
GNM has reopened its voluntary redundancy scheme and the precise number of departures from different editorial departments has not yet been finalised, although the company has said there will be fewer staff at the end of the process.
