Since the Daily Beast and Newsweek‘s merger, the death of newsweek.com has been steadily approaching. Now Daily Intel is reporting that they hear that starting July 19, newsweek.com will no longer exist. The website will instead redirect people to a Newsweek channel on the Daily Beast site instead. This Newsweek channel will have all of the archived magazine content, and will be updated once a day to rotate features. All new non-magazine content, however, will appear on the Daily Beast homepage.
We’ve known the end was near. But it’s still the end of an era! As Daily Intel writes, “that’s how the system has been working for some weeks now, but the death of the newsweek.com URL marks the official end of what was once a fully staffed and hugely trafficked site in its own right.”
R.I.P. And check out newsweek.com while you still can. There’s a major profile on Sarah Palin, if you’re into that sort of thing.
