The magazine is owned by Axel Springer. It is based in Warsaw and is published weekly on Mondays. Although it is Polish version of Newsweek, it does not fully cover the translations of the articles published in its parent magazine.
Tomasz Wróblewski was also the first editor-in-chief and served in the post between 2001 and 2004, and then between 2005 and 2006. Jarosław Sroka was the editor-in-chief in 2004. From 2006 to 2009 Michał Kobosko was the editor-in-chief. He was replaced by Wojciech Maziarski who was in office between 2009 and 2012. Tomasz Lis has been the editor-in-chief of the weekly since 2012.
Newsweek has promoted a variety of views, mostly depending on those held by the current editor-in-chief, although it has traditionally been associated with liberal politics, much like the Gazeta Wyborcza. Ever since Tomasz Lis took over as editor-in-chief, the magazine has taken a more radically anticlerical and anti-conservative approach; the editorial board is frequently subjected to criticism from Law and Justice leader Jarosław Kaczyński. The cover of the 1 April 2015 issue featured Kaczyński with a caption saying "Assassin", implying his responsibility for the alleged "assassination" of Polish national unity in the aftermath of the 2010 Smolensk plane crash.
The circulation of Newsweek Polska in March 2009 was 192,000 copies. The magazine had a circulation of 114,309 copies in 2010 and 106,509 copies in 2011. It was 123,225 copies in 2012. The print and e-edition circulation of the weekly was 119,776 in August 2014.
