Newsweek ending print edition, job cuts expected


Newsweek will end its print publication after 80 years and shift to an all-digital format in early 2013. Its last U.S. print edition will be its Dec. 31 issue. The paper version of Newsweek is the latest casualty of a changing world where readers get more of their information from websites, tablets and smartphones. It's also an environment in which advertisers are looking for less expensive alternatives online.

Senh: Amazing. Tablets and smartphones are the nail in the coffin for the print media.

Tina Brown to Run Newsweek in Daily Beast Merger

Tina Brown to Run Newsweek in Daily Beast Merger

Tina Brown is back in the world of print. After a brief and interrupted dalliance, Newsweek, the 77-year-old magazine, and The Daily Beast, Ms. Brown’s two-year-old Web site, have decided to put their cultural differences aside and join forces.

Senh: This is a strange deal. I'm not sure if it's a win-win for both. It's more of a win for The Daily Beast. Newsweek is worth a lot more than The Daily Beast, but the merger would make both equal. The Daily Beast isn't gonna "power" Newsweek's growth because it only less than half of Newsweek's web audience. If anything, it'll be the other way around. Smells like the AOL/Time Warner deal during the internet's glory days, except in a smaller scale.
