Looking for the font used by The Australian newspaper in mid-2010s

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to determine the name of the typeface used by The Australian newspaper (Australia's sole national newspaper) during the mid-2010s for their article's body text. I've attached a screenshot of an article from April 25th, 2015 - I hope its enough?

Thank you!

It's definitely a transitional serif typeface. It's actually pretty similar to Times New Roman, but a wee bit beefier and a big difference is that the lowercase t has a straight ascender. The overall impression is that the descenders and ascenders are less prominent (than in TNR), giving the effect of a slightly larger x-height. Also, the angles on the serifs are a little less slanted.

Seems to be the current version as well: Times Classic, a current/custom version of Times.
