In a memo sent to U.S. News & World Report staff this past Friday, editor Brian Kelly, and president William D. Holiber announced that the organization would stop printing monthly magazines and focus on digital publishing.
The gradual move away from print began in 2008. First the magazine reduced frequency from weekly to biweekly issues. Then a few months later it became a monthly.
U.S. News will still print a handful of special issues each year, like its college and hospital rankings issues, which will be distributed on newsstands and through other means.
According to reports the memo stated that no layoffs would result from the decision.
