Newsweek announced today it would end its print edition and go digital only at the end of this year.
The magazine announced it this way:
"As part of this transition, the last print edition in the United States will be our Dec. 31 issue.
Meanwhile, Newsweek will expand its rapidly growing tablet and online presence, as well as its successful global partnerships and events business.
Newsweek Global, as the all-digital publication will be named, will be a single, worldwide edition targeted for a highly mobile, opinion-leading audience who want to learn about world events in a sophisticated context. Newsweek Global will be supported by paid subscription and will be available through e-readers for both tablet and the Web, with select content available on The Daily Beast."
I subscribe to a few magazines. I receive the printed copy in the mail, and can look through the digital version on my iPad. But I like having the option of reading it both ways.
Do you prefer digital over printed when it comes to magazines? And if more magazines go that way, what will patients pick up as they wait for their doctor and dentist appointments?
