WWD will transition to a weekly following April 24 edition
The women’s fashion daily newspaper, WWD, other wise known as Women’s Wear Daily, will produce its last daily edition on April 24, the paper’s editors told readers today. WWD will convert to a weekly format.
“To better serve the global fashion, beauty and retail industries, WWD is about to embark on a transformation that’s a long way from the first edition of Women’s Wear on July 13, 1910,” the newspaper said.
“To be clear, this doesn’t mean we’re discarding daily journalism. On the contrary, we’re doubling down with an enhanced and invigorated WWD.COM where you’ll see deeper editorial content, more breaking news and more stories around the clock.”
Late last summer Penske Media Corp. acquired WWD when it purchased Fairchild Fashion Media from Condé Nast, though Style.com and NowManifest stayed with Condé Nast.
WWD produces a PDF edition available to subscribers, as well as a Newsstand app that appears to not have been updated in ages, is a replica, and still appears under the Condé Nast Digital developer account.
