According to the subscription details, the Editor’s Edition will be a “behind-the-scenes” look at the week’s big issues and will aim to provide an insight into the week in news and the newsroom.

The Australian Financial Review editor-in-chief Michael Stutchbury already sends a regular email to AFR subscribers.

Fairfax Media has declined to comment on the trial.

This week it was revealed Fairfax had made a number of redundancies in its marketing department, with marketing director Chelsea Wymer, who is understood to have taken voluntary redundancy.
