Newsweek To End Print And Move To All-Digital By 2013


Magazines have always been a part of my household, but times are changing.  Newsweek has announced that they will cease print and go all-digital.

Growing up I always looked forward to getting magazines in the mail.  It didn’t matter what kind it was, I loved looking through them.  As I got older I used magazines to practice speaking.  I would read articles and even ads aloud.

In today’s society, magazines are becoming a thing of the past.  The Internet is now taking over.  Any and everything can be found on the web.  Many magazines have both online publications and printed.  Of course, online always has up to the minute updates and tons of extras.

Because of the limitlessness of web, you are not forced to picking and choosing the best parts of interviews and stories, you can include everything.  That is why print is becoming something of the past.

On Thursday, Newsweek announced that they would be moving to an all-digital publication.  The transition will happen by 2013.  In fact, the last print edition in the U.S. will be December 31st.

Over the past few years, Newsweek has lost money due to low sales.  This transition to all digital will allow them to stay committed to Newsweek and to journalism.  The new digital publication will be called “Newsweek Global.”

Unfortunately, some of the Newsweek staff will have to be let go.  The e-magazine will be available by paid subscriptions and made available for e-readers for both tablet and the Web, with select content available on The Daily Beast.

This makes me wonder what other magazines are thinking about going all-digital?  I don’t know if I’m in the minority, but I still love looking at magazines.  Do you?
