As 2012 Comes To A Close…-------
…Newsweek—in print form—closes with it. The magazine will go digital-only in 2013; this week, the historic title released its last paper-and-ink issue, complete with hashtag coverline. The announcement a few weeks ago raised (again) the print-is-dead alarms, but 2012 wasn’t all bad for magazines. Several others did shutter, including Vogue Hommes Japan and Whole Living, but the year also saw the launch of Du Jour, M, and the relaunch of Best Life, as well as the late-breaking sale of i-D to Vice Media. Onward to 2013.
