U.S. News & World Report to Go Monthly, Source Says

Just months after announcing it would publish every other week instead of weekly while shifting emphasis to service journalism on the Web, the ad-challenged U.S. News & World Report is slashing its frequency yet again and going monthly, a source close to the news magazine confirmed.

A U.S. News rep would not confirm the change, which was reported earlier Nov. 4 by Folio and Mediabistro.com.

Another source close to the magazine said U.S. News announced to employees Nov. 4 that the magazine would be putting greater focus on the Web, with emphasis on such topics as education, health and news.
