Monthly business and technology magazine Dynamic Business is to close after more than two decades of publishing.
The title will continue to exist online through the website dynamicbusiness.com.au. The October issue has just gone to print and the November issue will be the last.
Colin Porter, MD of the publisher of Dynamic Business, Loyalty Media, said: “The decision to close the magazine was not difficult in that the engagement we have with our partners and readers in the online space has exceeded that of the magazine for over 18 months. The financial viability of printed products is no longer there.”
The closure also sees the departure of editor and publisher Jen Bishop, who joined the magazine in 2008. She oversaw the launch of the website later that year, and the relaunch of the magazine in 2010. She will leave on 16 October to work on her blog theinteriorsaddict.com.
Bishop said: “I have loved my time at Dynamic Business and the magazine really has become my baby. While it is of course sad to see it go, this is the reality of publishing today. The brand is extremely strong and I have high hopes for the new direction under Lorna and Rhiannon’s very capable leadership. I am excited for the next step in my own career.”
The website will be edited by ex-Nine and Connected Media journalist Lorna Brett and associate editor Rhiannon Sawyer, a former Sunday Magazine and Filmink journalist.
