Breaking ground at Newsweek

Mark Whitaker named editor of weekly news magazine

the magazine’s coverage of technology-related issues. He inaugurated a new section the second week after his appointment called Science & Technology, which will run weekly.

“I don’t think there’s a need for any dramatic change because I think we put out a pretty good magazine,” he says. “The first priority remains being out front on the big news stories. Whether it’s issues like the Clinton scandal, the Gulf War, the O.J. Simpson trial or the political races-whenever there are very big ongoing news stories-we’ll be devoting the resources, space and talent to make sure that we’re way out on front on those stories.”
