Newsweek Hunts for Publisher

Newsweek is searching for a publisher after a deal with someone (who is not being named!) fell through. Etienne Uzac, CEO of the magazine’s parent — IBT Media — told WWD that they hope to have someone filling the role before summer.

“What we’re looking for is indeed a publisher in the traditional sense of the term, whether we call it a publisher or a head of sales,” Uzac explained. “Essentially, it’s someone who can head up digital sales among other things.”

Uzac added that the publisher would refine Newsweek’s mobile products, hire new editorial and marketing staffers, and find and then expand new sources of revenue.

Newsweek’s publisher will not, we assume, be asked to help with fact checking. Though that might not be a bad idea.
