In an early morning memo on Thursday to all staff of Newsweek and its web companion The Daily Beast, editor-in-chief Tina Brown announced that the last print edition of the 80-year-old magazine will be its Dec. 31 issue. In a move she called "a turn of the page," Brown said Newsweek will transition to an all-digital format early in 2013. The new publication will be renamed Newsweek Global and "will be a single, worldwide edition targeted for a highly mobile, opinion-leading audience who want to learn about world events in a sophisticated context," she wrote.
