THE ANNOUNCEMENT comes as no surprise, with weekly magazines struggling to stay alive in the new-media era.
It is, however, the dawning of the realization that the weekly magazine genre is dead, even if many hang on.
We are announcing this morning an important development at Newsweek and The Daily Beast. Newsweek will transition to an all-digital format in early 2013. As part of this transition, the last print edition in the United States will be our Dec. 31 issue. Meanwhile, Newsweek will expand its rapidly growing tablet and online presence, as well as its successful global partnerships and events business.
Publishing has forever changed with the web, from books to mags to newspapers.
It will now be up to Time magazine to provide the titillating covers.
