Ms Boycott said: "I have always admired the Independent on Sunday. It is a newspaper which values quality writing, the truth and integrity and has never sacrificed those principles." Liam Healy, chairman of Newspaper Publishing, owners of the Independent and the Independent on Sunday, said: "Ms Boycott will bring a fresh dynamic approach."
