More about Influence

John Witherow, Editor

“A faithful recorder of the times for more than 200 years. It is authoritative, credible, responsible, trusted and a part of the nation’s cultural heritage. A premium British brand, recognised the world over.

But The Times is also a fast-moving, highly-creative, multi-channel media operation which has a long heritage of modernity, of being first, of breaking through, of creating change.

It is an informer, an entertainer, a campaigner, an innovator and an agenda-setter that has always had the capacity to surprise. From William Howard Russell to Caitlin Moran. From hot lead to cold type. From Times New Roman to The Times on iPad.

The Times possesses the unique ability to push boundaries, embrace new technologies but remember old traditions.”
