The first Foreign Service News Letter was dated March 20, 1947, and was published monthly by the office of the Director General of the United States Foreign Service to "acquaint members of the Foreign Service with plans and developments of interest to or which may affect operations or personnel in the field." The Foreign Service News Letter's final issue, Number 170, was dated April 15, 1961.

A Department Notice dated April 21, 1961, announced that "the Foreign Service News Letter, formerly published by the Director General of the Foreign Service, will be retitled the Department of State News Letter and published by the Bureau of Administration, effective with the issue of May 15, 1961." In its new form, the News Letter was intended to "acquaint the Department's officers and employees, at home and abroad, with developments of interest which may affect operations or personnel."

Issue number 1 of the Department of State News Letter appeared on May 16, 1961. The final issue, number 229, was published in December, 1980. It was immediately succeeded by the January, 1981, publication of State, which continued the News Letter's numbering with issues 230-378. In 1996, with the June/July issue (number 379), the publication became State Magazine.

The 500th issue of State Magazine was published in April 2006. The occasion was marked with a revamped design and a retrospective article that recounted major events covered during the preceding 45 years.

Citing fiscal and environmental benefits, State Magazine transitioned to a dynamic digital-only multimedia publication available online and via mobile app on web-enabled Apple iOS and Android devices, beginning with the October 2015 issue.
