Almost four months since it merged with Editor in Chief Tina Brown’s Daily Beast Website, the struggling 78-year-old redesigned Newsweek magazine hit newsstands today. The cover features Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the cover.
The redesign coincides with Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit, which takes place this week from March 10-12. Brown revealed the new cover yesterday morning on ABC’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour;” Amanpour is one of the participants of the Women in the World Summit; others include Hillary and Bill Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, Melinda Gates and Michael Bloomberg.
Of the redesigned newsweekly Brown said in a letter to readers, “It’s a new day — and, we hope, a new era.” She added that this week’s issue “was produced by a still-evolving team of editors, writers and photographers.”
