Time Cuts Back in 2013

January 10, 2013

In an unusual step for Time, the newsweekly is publishing three fewer issues this year, for a total of 48. Time usually only had one double issue, its year-end Person of the Year issue. This year there will be three, POY including the Time 100 and Making of America.

Time actually went dark one week in 2011, but it published an extra issue for the Royal Wedding, resulting in the same number of total issues.

Before going digital-only, Newsweek published 44 issues last year. The New Yorker has 47 issues scheduled this year, and New York, 42.
