Newsweek Unveils First Post-Sale Issue

The new Newsweek has arrived.

The magazine--which has traveled from print titan to print struggler to digital-only magazine, and has been sold twice in the past three years--unveiled the first issue of its latest incarnation on Friday. It is now owned by International Business Times Media, is edited by Jim Impoco, and has been on a hiring spree of late.

The re-launched title's cover story is by veteran journalist Kurt Eichenwald. Called "The Phantom Menace," it challenges the frequent assertion that Iran presents a dangerous nuclear threat.


Impoco told Capital New York's Joe Pompeo that he wants to turn Newsweek "back into an indispensable read, not an optional read."
