Murdoch's Sun on Sunday to launch next week
The Sun on Sunday is to publish for the first time next weekend, News International has announced.
An email to all staff said that Rupert Murdoch, boss of parent company News Corporation, would "be staying in London to oversee the launch".
Mr Murdoch flew in to the UK last week, and told Sun staff that a Sunday edition would be launched "very soon".
News International shut down its Sunday paper, the News of the World, last year amid the scandal over phone hacking.
There had been speculation about the possibility of a Sunday edition of the Sun since then, said BBC media correspondent Torin Douglas.
A gap in the market had been left by the News of the World's closure, he said, but as tabloid sales were declining it was unclear how much demand there was for the Sun for a seventh day a week.
