Majestic views are news for sun on Sunday.
In September, Rupert Murdoch opened News Corp.'s new headquarters in London, the News Building, which sits close to London Bridge on the River Thames. Among some 3,400 employees to move into the 17-story building was Victoria Newton, the editor of the Sun on Sunday, sister title to Britain's top-selling daily newspaper, the Sun.
The biggest changes for Newton, following the move from the paper's old home at Wapping, East London, are the new building's central location and having everyone on the editorial team all on one floor.
"Although rich in history, Wapping was difficult to get to and dreadful to get anywhere from. In addition, the newsroom was split over several floors," she says. "Moving into the News Building has been great in bringing all parts of the Sun--editorial, digital, production--into one space."
Another advantage: Floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow views across London north of the Thames, from St. Paul's Cathedral to the skyscrapers on Mary Axe and Fenchurch Street known affectionately as the Gherkin and the Walkie Talkie. "The original Wapping office had no windows at all," Newton says, "so you never knew what time of day it was."
