Tina Brown Shows Off the New Newsweek

Yesterday Tina Brown finally showed off the new look Newsweek to staffers, and among the many highlights was a centerfold of Barry Diller (turn ons: long walks on the beach, Barbra Streisand concerts).

The real additions, according to The Cutline, include longer stories, bigger pictures, lots of graphics and graphs, and a culture section called Omnivore. One person who works at Newsweek – in a totally unbiased opinion – said the magazine looked like a cross between GQ and New York magazine.

There hasn’t been any official date yet for the new Newsweek, but rumor is it’s expected to launch sometime this month.
