Schwartz Media has announced its weekly newspaper, The Saturday Paper, will officially launch in print and online on March 1, 2014.

A dedicated long-form journalistic paper The Saturday Paper has also announced its first lot of contributors which contains a team of well-known figures in the Australian media landscape. 

Part of that team is Hamish McDonald who joins as world editor, Kirsty Simpson as business editor, David Marr as columnist and Richard Cook as sports editor.

Correspondents Martin McKenzie-Murray from Melbourne and Sophie Morris from Canberra will also join The Saturday Paper.

Further contributors for the critics section include Christos Tsiolkas as film critic and Tim Freedman and Dave Faulkner as music critics. Helen Razer will write on television for the paper.

“This is a list of big voices and brilliant writers. I am enormously proud to publish each of them. The Saturday Paper is materialising before our eyes as a major force in Australian journalism,” Morry Schwartz, publisher, said.

“Assembling this team has been a pleasure. Almost 500 journalists applied for positions on The Saturday Paper – people of enormous talent that made choosing our journalists both easy and extremely difficult,” added Erik Jensen, editor of The Saturday Paper.

“I am sure the team we have will produce the best narrative journalism in Australia and, from hard news to lifestyle, will make The Saturday Paper a compulsory read.”

The Saturday Paper will be available in print in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, and as an app everywhere else.

More names will be announced before the launch in March.
