Newsweek/Daily Beast Company Renamed ‘NewsBeast’ Because It’s Cool Sounding

Newsweek/The Daily Beast Company has renamed itself “NewsBeast.” Above is a photo from The Daily Beast’s Instagram, capturing the announcement from Tina Brown and Baba Shetty. Newsweek and The Daily Beast are keeping their names; this is only a change for the company.

We imagine Brown and Shetty decided to change to NewsBeast because it sounds cool, but we cannot confirm that as it is Friday and we’d rather just roll with an unverified, absurd guess.
