SUNDAY, watch for the new Free Press SundayXtra, the Winnipeg Free Press Sunday newspaper that replaces On7.
SundayXtra will be sold at grocery and convenience stores and in the traditional Free Press blue paper boxes.
The Sunday paper returns to the Free Press's traditional format, a broadsheet, but most of On7's content -- heavy on entertainment, sports and breaking news, with This City columnist Bart Kives, the poker column, Hold 'Em, by Marco Carreira and Wired by David Bell -- will remain the same with some extra puzzles and even more sports.
The decision to return to a broadsheet format after the experiment with a tabloid comes just before the launch of Metro, a free tabloid.
We decided to differentiate ourselves from two competing tabloids by returning to our brand and time-honoured format.
The launch of SundayXtra comes just as the Free Press is opening The News Café, a community hub on McDermot Avenue, where people can get something to eat or drink and chat with reporters working there.
