At least more trees will be saved as we become a world of electronic media....
Newsweek, which has published a print edition weekly for 80 years, will abandon the format and go all digital after its Dec. 31 issue.
The digital edition, to be called Newsweek Global, will be available via subscription on tablet and online.
An undetermined number of staffers will be jettisoned.
Tina Brown, editor in chief of Newsweek Daily Beast, broke the news in a memo posted on The Daily Beast Web site this morning. “We are transitioning Newsweek, not saying goodbye to it,” she said.
“Regrettably, we anticipate staff reductions and the streamlining of our editorial and business operations both here in the US and internationally,” Brown added.
