Newsweek R.I.P.

The print edition will cease at the end of the year 

Hardly shocking when a print publication closes these days. Newsweek announced today it would stop its glossy paper edition by the end of this year and continue as an online-only subscriber-only entity.

I’m old enough to remember when Newsweek was the younger, hipper alternative to stately old Time, but its hipness during the Tina Brown era wasn’t for me nor, apparently for enough paying customers to keep it afloat.
