Newsweek to transition to online only

After 79 year run, Newsweek will end as print magazine.

Bloomberg, reporting on IAC/InterActiveCorp (IACI) quarterly earnings call:

A plan to move Newsweek to an online-only publication will be announced as early as September, Diller said. Newsweek became part of his media holdings in 2011 when it merged with IAC’s Daily Beast Co., an online news startup that Diller started with former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown. The merger was part of an agreement with the late Sidney Harman, who acquired Newsweek from Washington Post Co. for $1 and the assumption of liabilities.

Newsweek, for as long as I can remember, has always featured three editorial cartoons in its perspective section and most years they featured the best of of editorial cartoons.

They seemed to stop using Editorial cartoons soon after
Tina Brown took over. I haven’t seen the page with the
3 editorial cartoons in a long time. I think they got rid of
it in a design change

Right, Jeff. They got tired of paying $25 per cartoon a week for reprinted material. It was just TOO MUCH to ask of a major publication!
