NewsBeast Set for April Launch

The New York Post is reporting that the media outlet resulting from the merger of Newsweek and The Daily Beast will unveil in April. Tina Brown (left), The Daily Beast EIC, has brought on two former Time magazine journalists as interim leaders at Newsweek while prepares for the April launch.

Steve Koepp, a former Time editor, and Arthur Hochstein, that magazine’s former art director, joined the Newsweek staff this week.

The merger has been plagued by delays. Many magazine staff members, including EIC Jon Meacham, have left.
