The weekly online edition, delivered on Fridays, will be a feature-driven publication, retaining the most popular elements of PRWeek's current weekly print offering, while its new online format enables additional features like, videos, blogs, and other information. The new online edition will debut on May 1.
In addition, PRWeek will be launching a monthly print publication in June. The publication will feature more editorial content, deeper analysis, and more interviews and features with the top professionals and companies in the industry. We will continue to publish our most popular specials, surveys, and supplements in the print publication, along with additional features, techniques, and campaigns.
“Our monthly content will look much deeper into the trends and issues that are facing the industry,” said Julia Hood, publishing director, PRWeek. “The new magazine will be in the standard magazine-size format, and has been completely redesigned, offering an exciting new look that reflects a fresh approach to our coverage.”
PRWeek will also be relaunching its daily newsletter, to be called PRWeek Breakfast Briefing, to highlight breaking news and commentary. It will also debut on May 1.
The PRWeek Web site, prweekus.com, just had a record month in March, with the highest number of page views and visitors in its history. All content on the site, which will continue to provide breaking news and commentary, will now be gated to subscribers, starting on April 27th.
“We believe strongly that the new editorial package will offer readers the very best balance of our current coverage, with a whole new level of insight and depth that a weekly print format could not enable us,” Hood said.
The subscriber package will now include monthly print magazine, full access to all contents of PRWeekus.com, daily PRWeek Breakfast Briefing, weekly digital edition, and annual PRWeek Contact directory.
The last weekly print issue will be the April 27th Agency Business report.
