Newsweek to resurrect print edition early next year, says report
NEW YORK (AFP) - International current affairs magazine Newsweek plans to relaunch its print edition in early 2014, just over one year after ceasing publication to focus on its website, the New York Times reported.
Newsweek editor in chief Jim Impoco was quoted as saying on Tuesday that the magazine, which was last printed in December 2012, would aim to become a subscription-based outlet akin to The Economist rather than its traditional rival Time Magazine.
"We see it as a premium product, a boutique product," Mr Impoco was quoted as saying of the magazine's relaunch, which is expected in either January or February.
The return of Newsweek's print edition marks a turbulent few years for the title, which was first published in 1933.
