Newsweek, the venerable weekly news magazine, has been publishing steadily since 1933. At that time, the magazine cost 10 cents an issue or you could buy a full year subscription for $4.00. Inside the pages — solid news reporting and in-depth looks at people and issues you thought you knew. But it’s the covers that made Newsweek famous, from their undoctored OJ mugshot to Obama with a rainbow halo.
Well, the reporting will live on but the mag’s cover days are almost over. At the end of this year, Newsweek as a print magazine will cease to exist. After that, it’s all digital. You’ll still have to pay for a subscription but the issues will arrive in your iPad instead of your mailbox.
