Newsweek is Alive in Print…in Europe? (updated)

February 14, 2013

Did the folks in Europe hear the news that Newsweek is now a digital only entity? After all the fanfare about morphing into a digital entity, my friend Branislav Ondrasik from the Pan European University in Bratislava, Solvakia emailed me a picture from a newsstand in the capital city with the comment questioning whether the folks at Newsweek “still believe there is market for it at least here.” He adds “Newsweek is on a newsstand in Bratislava, Slovakia and across the continent.” The proof is in the picture below. The cover is dated Feb. 13, 2013. Go figure!

Apparently Newsweek is printed in The Netherlands under license by a different company called Newsweek EMEA (Europe, Mideast, Africa). The content of the magazine is the same as the digital edition. And, here is yet another print evidence, this time from Paris (Thanks Patrick)…

  1. so the Slovaks figured it out but Tina and Jon M couldn’t. Brilliant.

  2. I have seen it also. It is as the online edition. I have already emailed Newsweek (still pending my refund for a cancelled subscription) to ask about what the hell is going on here…

  3. Dr. Husni, I can report to you that it’s available in print here in Central America, too. I and my family moved to Belize in October 2012 and, although magazines are hard to find here in the capital city of Belmopan, there are a few stores that carry them. And it confused the heck out of me when I saw an up-to-date copy in one of the stores earlier this year. I guess, as you have made clear, print isn’t quite as dead as some would have a person believe!

    • Jason, Good to hear from you. Hope all is well and do stay in touch. All the best, Doc.
