NEW YORK (AP) - The head of the company that owns Newsweek says the longtime newsweekly is examining its future as a weekly print magazine. During a conference call with analysts Wednesday, IAC/InterActiveCorp Chairman Barry Diller said that while Newsweek's "brand is good" around the world, producing a weekly news magazine in print form isn't easy. Diller says IAC is examining all options for Newsweek and will have a plan in the coming months. He said little about what those options were. Short of going Internet only, Newsweek could publish its print editions less frequently. Magazines and newspapers have been trying to adapt to a world in which readers get more of their information from free websites and advertisers funnel more of their marketing budgets to less expensive alternatives online.
