Independent On Sunday to radically cut its arts output

The Independent On Sunday is to revamp its arts coverage, with a move away from extensive reviewing. The development will seemingly mean much less content from the paper’s various critics, including popular music writer Simon Price.

It’s thought the shift will lead to seven mainly freelance roles being axed at the paper, in addition to the 27 redundancies already due to take place across the daily and Sunday editions of The Independent.

The broadsheet’s owners have been busy instigating various cost cutting measures of late (and for some time, for that matter) in a bid to make the loss-making title commercially viable.
