The Basics: How to Cancel Your Subscription to The Newsweek Magazine


Newsweek Magazine was launched in the United States in 1933 and competed successfully against Time Magazine until its financial difficulties and liabilities forced them to sell to the Washington Post in 2010 for a price of one dollar and an assumption of the liabilities. Subsequently, the company merged with The Daily Beast and eventually ceased print publication December of 2012. Print publication was reinstated in 2014 and It is now available in digital format as well.
