The announcement includes new plans to boost the Newsweek staff, after the magazine’s editor-in-chief, executive news director and several senior writers were fired for investigating its parent company following a raid by the Manhattan district attorney.

“I’m delighted to take on this role,” said Cooper in a statement. “I look forward to the challenge of building Newsweek’s respected journalistic heritage while leading our global digital expansion.”
