One year after launch, Newsweek Europe is redesigning its print magazine, adding new sections and expanding the editorial team, editor-in-chief Richard Addis announced today.
iPhone and Android apps are also in the pipeline. “It has to be said that our future must definitely be online”, he said.
The print version is “a bit of a luxury add-on”, he explained, as he expects Newsweek readers to access the publication online and see the hard copy as a “treat” within five years.
The Newsweek on the stands today is the third reincarnation of the title. Its original print edition ceased publication at the end of 2012, going digital-only after a failed merger with the Daily Beast.
It was later bought by IBT Media, publishers of the International Business Times, splitting from the Beast and appearing in print again from March 2014.
Today’s print refresh includes the addition of a Weekend section, with a focus on travel, art, books and fashion among others, as well as a Business section looking at new developments in Europe.
