USA Today Shutters Weekend Magazine

USA Weekend was the country's second-largest news mag


USA Today is shutting down its weekend magazine at the end of this month, the newspaper’s president and publisher Larry Kramer said in a memo to staffers today.

"After careful consideration, we have decided to close USA Weekend Magazine," he wrote. "The December 28 issue … will be its last."

Last year, USA Today began distributing a weekend "Life" publication, focusing on entertainment and lifestyle content, to Gannett-owned local newspapers. After conducting reader research, said Kramer, the company decided that the new supplement provided "readers and affiliates with a superior product to USA Weekend Magazine."
