The new-look FT, meanwhile, boasts a specially-designed font called Financier and introduces a regular sports column on a Monday. But this ostensibly modest “refresh” reflects a huge shift in working practices, which a memo sent out before the summer holidays described as “completing the digital newsroom”. Under the banner “one global newspaper” a single international edition will cover Asia, Europe and the US. The UK and US editions will still be updated but the aim is for the newspaper to be “a quality snapshot in time” while news is updated online. A small team of about 15 people led by FT veteran and former night editor Hugh Carnegy will produce the paper, some of which will have appeared online first. “We don’t want copy being handled by five or six people, that’s not necessary. Website copy will appear in the paper.”
