Newsweek returning to print as ‘boutique product’


Newsweek's last print issue

Newsweek last print issue in 2012

Newsweek, the iconic weekly news magazine that ended its print run in 2012, will be back as a 64-page weekly edition in January or February 2014.

Jim Impoco, Newsweek’s editor-in-chief, told New York Times that this incarnation of the magazine would depend more heavily on subscribers than advertisers to pay its bills. “We see it as a premium product, a boutique product,” Impoco said. “Closer to what The Economist is compared to what Time magazine is.” The UK-based financial newspaper charges $160 for a one-year subscription.

Newsweek is now owned by a small digital media company based in Manhattan, New York, (646) 867 7100, info@ibtimes.com
