Following Trinity Mirror's announcement today that the Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror are to move to a seven day publishing model, a statement has been published on the company's website explaining the decision.
"The decision, approved by the Board, is a further step towards creating one of the most technologically advanced and operationally efficient newsrooms in Europe.
The seven day organisation across the two titles is enabled through the company's multi-million pound investment in the ContentWatch editorial system. The new structure will ensure that our newsroom is fully equipped to achieve the company's multi-media publishing strategy across our newspapers, online, mobile and new e-editions for tablet devices.
