U.S. News & World Report magazine will (mostly) stop being a print publication next year, according to an internal memo published on a journalism news site.
"Colleagues, We're finally ready to complete our transition to a predominantly digital publishing model with selected, single-topic print issues," editor Brian Kelly wrote to employees last week.
"The December issue will be our last print monthly sent to subscribers," Kelly wrote in the memo, according to the Poynter Institute's Romenesko blog.
The magazine, known for its "Best" lists of colleges and health care providers, once was a weekly newsmagazine such as Time or Newsweek but more recently became a monthly, according to minonline.
U.S. News' roots go back to 1933, the same year Newsweek started; it has been owned by Mortimer Zuckerman, a frequent CNN contributor, since 1984. Its circulation was 2.1 million in 2000, but it was promising advertisers only 1.1 million this year, according to minonline.
