Newsweek coming back from the undead


The once-venerable Newsweek shutdown its print edition about a year ago, putting what was left of its ashes exclusively online.

But the physical product is now coming back, according to the New York Times:

The magazine expects to begin a 64-page weekly edition in January or February, said Jim Impoco, Newsweek’s editor in chief. Mr. Impoco said in an interview that Newsweek would depend more heavily on subscribers than advertisers to pay its bills — and that readers would pay more than in the past. ...

Mr. Impoco, who became Newsweek’s editor in September, said that the magazine’s new owner would not have to spend as much money publishing it as its predecessor. He said that IBT was negotiating with printers and distributors, and hoped that it would build its circulation to 100,000 in the first year.

Newsweek, once the sister publication of The Daily Beast, was sold to International Business Times in August.
