Jesinta Campbell re-creates first Cleo cover for final issue
The Sydney Morning Herald

Interestingly, Jesinta Campbell is also the cover girl for competitor Cosmopolitan this month, so it’s strange to see both magazines sitting alongside each other on the newsagents’ stands.

That first issue had the cover price of 60 cents… is Cleo going to do the same price for its last issue? :slightly_smiling:

Former Pacific Magazines boss Nick Chan has been named new CEO of Bauer Media’s Australian and NZ operations. He had previously worked at Bauer Media’s predecessor Australian Consolidated Press.

Mumbrella reports Bauer will cease publishing motorsport magazine Auto Action across print, digital and social channels and is seeking a new owner for the mag. It looks to me Bauer is trying to streamline (or even exit) the auto publishing business, after closing down the local edition of Top Gear and selling three motorcycle titles to Citrus Media, both in 2015.

Australian Women’s Weekly names Juliet Rieden as editor

Marina Go, who oversees Hearst Australia titles Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Cosmopolitan, has quit after two years with Bauer Media. She will depart at the end of October to take up a board role with automotive retailer Autosports Group ahead of its initial public offering next month.

Bauer Media has announced that Matt Dominello, publisher of The Australian Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day, Yours and Good Health, has resigned in order to pursue his interests outside of publishing. His departure is the second from a publisher in three days after Marina Go’s departure was revealed late last week. Dominello, who joined Bauer Media 18 months ago, will remain in the post until December in order to manage a handover.

Bauer Trader Media has sold its adventures titles to Adventures Group Holdings, a group of investors led by Robert Gallagher, the current general manager of adventures at Bauer Xcel Media. The magazine titles sold include Caravan World, Campertrailer Australia, Motorhome and Caravan Trader, Travelin, Turu and associated websites. The deal is expected to be finalised at the end of November, with existing Trader staff who work directly on the brands transitioning over to the new business.

Bauer Media has approached Seven West Media about a possible purchase of Pacific Magazines, The Australian is reporting.

Lovely, because we’d like to see all of the mag industry in Australia decimated is what that is saying.

Dolly magazine’s print edition axed after 46 years

ICONIC teen magazine Dolly has been axed, with its publisher Bauer Media pulling the pin on the print edition of the publication after 46 years.

The decision comes just seven months after the publisher decided to reduce the magazine to a bimonthly print edition and focus on mobile content.

No wonder newsagents are shutting up shop everywhere.

yep, my local closed down. a subagency which is a florist/gift store and coffee shop now sells the papers.

The women’s magazines are just constantly getting smashed for their bullshit stories now. It’s happening almost every week. You have to wonder how much this is affecting their circulations now.

but isn’t most of their show sourced from their New Idea friends?

Which is why they know that these people sit around the office all day and make shit up. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

An absolute epic fail from Woman’s Day this week with a Fake News story about Noelene Hogan which they must have just made up sitting around the office and quoting supposed sources.

Not only did they get it wrong that her relationship with new husband was still going well, since her husband died years ago, but they provided a photo as proof to back up their “sources” which was actually a photo of her out shopping with her son.

Yeah but I’m not sure the Daily Smellograph is one to be too high and mighty about fake news/gossip.


Absolutely right. It never seems to stop them beng judgemental and making stuff up.

I’m shocked to report that TV Week has had a cover that was not Home and Away for two weeks running. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Last week it was 800 Words and this week it is Married At First Sight for the first time.

Even more shocking, they also had a My Kitchen Rules recently so that’s three out of the last four issues. :open_mouth: :laughing:
