Cosmo Australia closes downBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Tuesday, 16th October 2018 at 1:38pm
One of Bauer Media’s prized publications, Cosmopolitan Australia, has reached its end.
Bauer Media ANZ CEO Paul Dykzeul said today that after careful considerations, the magazine will wrap up after the release of the December 2018 issue, which has American singer Ciara on the cover.
“We are incredibly proud of the brand and the people who have been involved and represented over the last 45 years. It has helped to launch the careers of media personalities, supported great brands and causes, and inspired millions of young women across the country,” Dykzeul added.
The move followed months of uncertainty at Bauer Media, which included a noticeable absence of Cosmopolitan Bride from news agencies and Lorna Gray taking over the editorship last July from Keshnee Kemp.
