The Independent on Sunday
The Independent is a British online newspaper. Established in 1986 as an independent national morning newspaper published in London, it was controlled by Tony O'Reilly's Independent News & Media from 1997 until it was sold to Russian oligarch Alexander Lebedev in 2010. Since March 2016, it is no longer printed, but is available for readers online.
Nicknamed the Indy, it began as a broadsheet newspaper, but changed to tabloid (compact) format in 2003. Regarded as coming from the centre-left on culture and politics, it tends to take a pro-market stance on economic issues. Until September 2011, the paper described itself on the banner at the top of every newspaper as "free from party political bias, free from proprietorial influence."
In June 2015, it had an average daily circulation of just below 58,000, 85 per cent down from its 1990 peak, with the Sunday edition having a circulation of just over 97,000. On 12 February 2016, it was announced that The Independent and its sister Sunday title would become digital-only. The last print edition of The Independent on Sunday was published on 20 March 2016, with the main paper ceasing print publication the following Saturday.
Launched in 1986, the first issue of The Independent was published on 7 October in broadsheet format. It was produced by Newspaper Publishing plc and created by Andreas Whittam Smith, Stephen Glover and Matthew Symonds. All three partners were former journalists at The Daily Telegraph who had left the paper towards the end of Lord Hartwell's ownership. Marcus Sieff was the first chairman of Newspaper Publishing, and Whittam Smith took control of the paper.
