Newspapers and magazines

Back to the style guide menu

In London, we italicise the names of newspapers and magazines. Like we do with the titles of books, films and tv programmes. 

But only The Times and The Economist have ‘the’ in italics and with a cap. So it’s:

Ally read the article in The Times but Ed read it in the Daily Telegraph.

And we tend to treat newspapers and magazines as plural nouns. Like this:

City AM ran a big article on our Steven Pinker event, and they love our app too. 

But in New York we don’t italicise and we treat newspapers and magazines as singular nouns. So it’s: 

City AM ran a big article on our Steven Pinker event, and it loves our app too.
