Newsweek returns to print

Popular American news magazine, Newsweek, already made its transition from ink to link early this year. But Newsweek editor-in-chief, Jim Impoco, said in an interview on Tuesday that Newsweek will resume printing magazines.

The former New York Times editor also said that Newsweek will now depend more on subscribers than advertisers. "It’s going to be a more subscription-based model, closer to what The Economist is compared to what Time magazine is," Impoco said.

It was a bumpy ride for the paper. Challenged by the Internet age, its previous owner, The Washinton Post, sold Newsweek in 2010 for $1 to investor Sidney Harman, who also inherited over $40 million in liabilities.

It didn't help that Newsweek was merged with the news and opinion website, The Daily Beast. The failed venture eventually forced Newsweek to end its magazine publication. It remained as an online magazine, until The Daily Beast Owner, IAC/InterActiveCorp, sold Newsweek to IBT Media in August this year.

IBT Media, the owner of the International Business Times, plans to attain a circulation of 100,000 on its first year.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
