The Sunday Correspondent was a short-lived British weekly national broadsheet newspaper. Launched on 17 September 1989, it ceased publication on 25 November 1990. It was edited by Peter Cole, who subsequently went into academia.
On launching, the paper billed itself as the first new quality Sunday title for 28 years (since the launch of The Sunday Telegraph in 1961). By the time it folded just over a year later, it was attempting to position itself as Britain's first quality tabloid. Underfunding, a perceived lack of glamour and personality, and the launch of The Independent on Sunday in January 1990 were all likely factors in its demise. The Guardian journalists Jonathan Freedland and Luke Harding, Newsnight editor Ian Katz, the BBC's business editor Robert Peston and art critic Andrew Graham Dixon all started their national careers on the title.
Other notable journalists on the staff were Henry Porter, who edited the magazine, political editor Donald MacIntyre, feature editor Mick Brown, foreign correspondent David Blundy and Catherine Bennett.
