The magazine's target audience includes leaders in business, government, and other professional sectors. Formerly published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the glossy is now published by the Washington Post Co.'s Slate Group.

Foreign Policy is a terrific magazine, and I'm pleased it will become a part of our company,” said Donald E. Graham, chairman of the Washington Post Co., in a statement. “Foreign Policy furthers our commitment to great magazine journalism and gives us another opportunity to expand our journalism online.”

Susan Glasser, an advisor to the Washington Post Co.'s chairman, Donald Graham, will become Foreign Policy's executive editor. Glasser had worked as The Post's assistant managing editor for national news until this past April.

Jacob Weisberg is the chairman and editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, which also runs Slate magazine and TheRoot.com.

The Washington Post Co. also publishes The Washington Post newspaper, Newsweek and a variety of community newspapers. It reported a net loss of $2.7 million for its second quarter ended June 29. In the second quarter of 2007, the company reported a net income of $68.8 million.
