Viva Newsweek, Adios The Daily Beast? A Mr. Magazine™ Commentary

September 12, 2013

PTDC0004 What goes around comes around. Last year The Daily Beast thought it had the last laugh when it was announced that Newsweek, the 80+ year-old, established magazine, and brand, will end its print edition after being merged with the almost unknown brand (outside the circles of the media,) The Daily Beast.

Well, the first rebirth of Newsweek came from overseas where the magazine returned to print on the world’s newsstands in Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. The second rebirth of Newsweek came when it was sold and was freed from the claws of the Beast. Now comes what maybe the true hope of a come back for Newsweek:

PTDC0004Tina Brown is leaving The Daily Beast to start her own Tina Brown Live Media, and the fate of The Daily Beast remains unknown. My guess it will go to the that wonderful world of the pixels on a screen afterlife. Will we see a return of the printed edition of Newsweek here? Only time will tell.

But in the mean time I am going to enjoy reading my recent print copy of Newsweek that I brought with me from my recent trip Mexico City.
