Newsweek publishes final column by owner Sidney Harman
Newsweek has posthumously published a column written by owner Sidney Harman after he was diagnosed with leukemia. "NEWSWEEK has given me great new life. It will participate actively in the renewal and reinvention of media. It may well lead the revolution," Harman wrote. "My family successors and I are committed to the future of the magazine and to THE DAILY BEAST. They are solidly financed and will continue to be. I am convinced that I make significant business and intellectual contributions, but I know that the enterprise will move forward, if necessary, without me." Harman died on April 12.
