The Brag Media closes The Brag print title

Publisher The Brag Media has closed its print title, The Brag, with the final issue available on 4 March. The print magazine launched in 2003 after six years under the title Revolver. The Brag became quarterly in 2018.

The Brag was a free street press title, available at pubs and music venues, which included gig guides and long-form content. A post about the closure on The Brag’s website said the print title fell victim to evolving times and that its content now lives best online.

The Brag will not exist in print anymore

“The Brag Media is evolving with its audience by offering them the premium experience they demand in print, while still delivering all the gig guides, news and op-eds they loved in The Brag Magazine online in a real-time, interactive format,” read the post.

“With Michael Di Iorio at the helm, the final issue will serve as a love letter to those who have gone before, those who have laboured over and fought for its place, and to the Australian artists who without, the magazine would be nothing.”

The Brag’s website will still operate, as will the publisher’s other titles including Tone Deaf, The Industry Observer, Don’t Bore Us and Rolling Stone Australia, which will also still exist as a print title.

Mumbrella understands there will be no redundancies associated with the closure, with the business planning to grow in the coming months.

Rolling Stone Australia re-launched online on 3 February and will release its first print magazine in May.
