Fiorella Di Santo, group director News Limited, said: “The launch of Sunday Style strengthens our offering to lifestyle advertisers. When you combine Sunday Style with News’ other popular lifestyle brands such as body+soul and taste.com.au, advertisers have a very compelling and powerful avenue to communicate with their audiences.”

Nicole Sheffield, managing director of NewsLifeMedia, added: “It will redefine newspaper inserted magazine publishing and lead the market both editorially and for our advertisers.”
“With the incredibly influential roster of columnists and the country’s leading style contributors that Kerrie has put together, Sunday Style is shaping up to be the most exciting launch of 2013.”
In a statement NewsLifeMedis said Sunday Style – which will run across print, tablet, mobile and social – is “destined to be Australia’s most powerful style experience”.
