Brands have been test driving a new tool to get their message to the masses in a scrapbook-like format from Twitter called Moments.
As it approaches its 10th birthday, IBT Media is ready to unveil new looks for its two flagship sites: the International Business Times and Newsweek.
It’s the end of an era for publishers—at least as far as their iconic New York headquarters are concerned. Time Inc. and Condé Nast, stalwarts of the midtown media scene, are preparing to relocate to new offices downtown, where they will join other emigrants like Newsweek, The Daily News and American Media Inc.
Newsweek returns to newsstands Friday with a small press run (70,000), but it’s hoping to make a big impact with its cover story, which claims to have actually tracked down the elusive Satoshi Nakamoto, the man credited with inventing Bitcoin.
Newsweek has hired Richard Addis to head up its overseas coverage as it gets ready to resurrect its print edition as a slick, upmarket weekly this week.
Richard Just has been named the new editor of Atlantic Media’s National Journal magazine. Just will start March 10 and be based at the publication’s D.C. headquarters. The announcement was made by Tim Grieve, National Journal's editor in chief.
In a counterintuitive (some would say logic-defying) move, Newsweek is returning to print. The newsmagazine that went digital-only a year ago is planning to put out a weekly edition early next year, The New York Times reported.
Rob Gregory, one of the many to exit the struggling Daily Beast in recent weeks, has landed at WhoSay as chief revenue officer.
IBT Media’s purchase of Newsweek seems to be off to an inauspicious start. The Newspaper Guild has accused the digital publishing company of “illegally muzzling” its employees by “prohibiting its journalists and other employees from discussing their working conditions or criticizing their employer,” in violation of U.S. labor law.
