New Statesman agrees content-sharing deal with The New Republic

Left of centre political weekly New Statesman has signed a content-sharing deal with US magazine The New Republic.

Under the deal, New Statesman will carry three pieces from The New Republic each week – and vice versa.

New Statesman, which like Press Gazette is part of the Progressive Media Group, marked its centenary this year.

Last year The New Republic was bought by Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes.

New Republic editor Frank Foer said: “Our relationship with the New Statesman is a perfect fit – its sensibility, readership, topical focus, and belief in the importance of both politics and culture all echo that of The New Republic."

New Statesman deputy editor Helen Lewis said: "The New Statesman and New Republic were founded within a year of each another, and have a shared mission – to bring thought-provoking, intelligent political and cultural writing to the widest possible audience. Here's to a new Special Relationship."

New Statesman has a weekly print circulation of 24,901 (according to ABC) and claims a monthly online readership in excess of one million unique browsers.

The New Rebublic has a fortnightly circulation of around 50,000 (according to the publisher).
