Venerable newspaper The Times of London begins publishing a tabloid edition Wednesday, joining a flock of papers seeking to increase circulation. The Times will continue to print its full-size, or "broadsheet," edition in addition to offering a more compact tabloid to appeal to readers who need a paper they can read while commuting. NPR's Robert Siegel speaks with Robert Thomson, editor of The Times.
