Also delivered on Saturday: Our new Sunday Style section
SUNDAY STYLE will increase coverage of popular culture in a compact and portable size designed to fit better into busy lifestyles. The section will focus primarily on movies, television and pop music, with stories, reviews and trend pieces by three of the best critics in the business: Ann Horn a day, Hank Stuever and Chris Richards. Joining the section will be two new columns: Deal hunter, a deeply reported look at some of the week’s best local shopping deals; and Web in Sites, a smart take on fascinating Web trends. Sunday Style will include book reviews that focus on pop culture, and The Scene, a gallery of photos from the D.C. area social whirl. Popular Sunday features, such as weddings coverage in On Love and advice columns by Carolyn Hax and Amy Dickinson, will be there, too. Two other popular features, Celebritology and The Style Invitational, will move from Saturday to Sunday Style.
will alert D.C. area shoppers each week to great deals in local stores. Reporter Holly Thomas will look at deals on haircuts to rental cars to how to score the best seat at a Capitals game. Deal hunter aims to provide a service to readers who find their time and wallet squeezed these days — and Saturday delivery means two days to put those tips to work.
