Zoo Weekly Goes Tits Up

Zoo Weekly Goes Tits Up

Bauer Media has confirmed the company’s intention to close ZOO Weekly magazine and its companion website, with the magazine’s final edition going on sale Monday 12 October.

“With tough retail conditions in the men’s market, Bauer has made the call to close ZOO’s operations. I would like to thank the teams here at Bauer, as well as the advertisers and retailers who have supported the brand,” said David Goodchild, CEO of Bauer Media.

“The staff has done a great job on ZOO Weekly over the years and I commend their work and thank them for their dedication and effort. It is not an easy decision to close a magazine and we have certainly considered all options before coming to this conclusion,” added Ewen Page, associate publisher, men’s and specialist.

The closure of ZOO Weekly magazine encompasses all platforms: print, website and social media assets and will take effect from Monday 12 October.

Zoo Weekly has been under pressure in recent times when a petition was launched against it to stop being sold in Coles supermarkets, as the group claimed it promoted rape culture.

And the group won, with Coles pulling the title from the shelves.
