As part of a plan to triple page impressions, Times Online has launched a TV service - Times TV - and made new appointments to aid integration of the web op- erations of The Times and The Sunday Times. The Sun Online has developed a classifieds section, Sun Local, as part of its drive to broaden its appeal. News Group said the appoint- ment of Bagguley was a sign of its seriousness about developing mobiles as the next home for its news content and to take adv- antage of the vast number of its readers who had mobile phones. Bagguley said: "It's a very excit- ing time for the mobile industry as a whole and I believe NGN has a superb opportunity in mobile, de- livering high-quality mobile con- tent and products to its readers." journalism.co.uk Doctor moves house Nic Cola seconded from Fairfax to Group Head of Digital - NZ.
