Daily Beast founder and The Diana Chronicles author Tina Brown will serve as editor-in-chief of both publications. Her Daily Beast business partner, Stephen Colvin, will serve as CEO of the new marriage.
Here’s more about the partnership from Brown: “It’s a wonderful new opportunity for all the brilliant editors and writers at The Daily Beast who have worked so hard to create the site’s success. Working at the warp-speed of a 24/7 news operation, we now add the versatility of being able to develop ideas and investigations that require a different narrative pace suited to the medium of print. And for Newsweek, The Daily Beast is a thriving frontline of breaking news and commentary that will raise the profile of the magazine’s bylines and quicken the pace of a great magazine’s revival.”
