LOS ANGELES (The Wrap) - When the Daily Beast and Newsweek
merged last October, most people in media circles started a
countdown for the end of the magazine's website. The wait is
Daily Intel is reporting that Newsweek.com will close July
19, at which point it will become a channel on the Daily Beast.
That means that the once-powerful weekly magazine's online
presence will be equivalent to the "politics," "business," and
even "fashion" sections of TheDailyBeast.com.
Since Newsweek puts all of its print content online, the
Newsweek channel will be updated once a day to rotate features
from the magazine. The channel will also hold all of the
archives. However, any Newsweek content that is not in the
magazine will be a part of the overall Daily Beast structure.
