Current Issue #487

A note on
The Adelaide Review’s future

After nearly 37 years The Adelaide Review will publish its final, 488th edition at the end of September.

Dear readers,

After nearly 37 years The Adelaide Review will publish its final, 488th edition at the end of September.

It is no secret that the upheavals of COVID-19 have hit the media industry in serious and profound ways, compounding the ongoing challenges and disruptions that in recent years have made a long-running, free street press like The Adelaide Review a rare and important piece of South Australia’s publishing landscape. But, unfortunately, the numbers just do not add up.

We will have more to say, and more people to thank, as we work towards publishing our final issue. Four decades is an incredible innings for any publication, and there is no question that The Adelaide Review’s reporting of the highs and lows of South Australian arts, politics, food and wine, and society, has had a profound impact on our readers and the state as a whole.

For that, we must of course thank our community of past contributors and editors who have filled our pages over the years, and the current team who have done an admirable job in challenging circumstances.

Please stay posted over the next month, and keep an eye out for our final edition.

Thank you for reading,

Walter Marsh
Digital Editor

Amanda Pepe
Publishing Director and Editor
