Time magazine has been sold again this time to billionaire Marc Benioff, and his wife. It has barely been eight months since it was sold US media group Meredith Corporation.

The soon-to-be former owner, Meredith said the Benioffs “will not be involved in the day-to-day operations or journalistic decisions”.
The ownership deal could close within a month but must first get regulatory approval.
Mr Benioff – who is chairman, co-chief executive and co-founder of the cloud computing firm Salesforce.com – said that
“The power of Time has always been in its unique storytelling of the people and issues that affect us all, and connect us all,” he tweeted.
