Justine Rosenthal Departs Newsweek/The Daily Beast

Justine Rosenthal is leaving Newsweek/The Daily Beast. Capital New York reports that Rosenthal, who was editing Newsweek and The Daily Beast after Tunku Varadarajan left in March, will be succeeded by Richard Just, with help from Louise Roug.

In a note to staffers, Tina Brown said Rosenthal’s skills and determination will be missed:

Justine took over Newsweek at a challenging time for the company in November of 2011 and immediately took command, cultivating writers and creating memorable stories that made us all proud…

Under Justine’s editorship we were able to reverse Newsweek’s many years of decline and breathe life back into the magazine both as a print edition and in the stellar digital format that she and the team have continued to produce each week.
