NEW YORK, N.Y. - Tina Brown, the editor who oversaw the ill-fated merger of Newsweek and The Daily Beast website, said Wednesday that she's parting ways with the company.
"Exciting news ... sad 2 leave Beast but change is good," Brown posted on Twitter.
Separately, Brown issued a news release saying she is launching Tina Brown Live Media. The company will host "flash debates" and summits, including the Women in the World conference, which she launched in 2010.
A spokeswoman for IAC/InterActiveCorp, which owns The Daily Beast, declined to comment.
