CityMag is a successful independent, local media brand owned by South Australian entrepreneur, Joshua Fanning. The digital site covers the city, its people and culture with its unique and engaging way of storytelling.
CityMag.com.au will remain the same but become a micro-site of InDaily providing a flow of news and insight into what is happening in Adelaide’s urban and cultural life for a larger combined audience.
Managing Director of Solstice Media Paul Hamra said the union made sense.
“We both offer different, deeper and more intelligent views of what is happening in Adelaide and South Australia and we are like minded about our audience’s need for a different style of journalism,” he said.
“With CityMag connected to InDaily we can offer a richer reading experience with more information about what is trending around town in design, planning, food, wine, arts and culture.
“As independent South Australian publishers we need to work together, not against each other, to show off and review everything Adelaide has to offer.”
Fanning says the collaboration will give South Australia a truly world-class independent media voice.
“The city of Adelaide is developing such a new and unique culture,” he said.
“This collaboration will create a distinct and relevant voice that speaks for the South Australians who are actively shaping and changing the state’s future for the better.”
“We’ve always admired InDaily’s intelligent insight into news and politics at the top level. Adding CityMag to their new digital platform will ensure Adelaide has a truly world-class independent media brand telling their stories.”
An email will be distributed to our combined database each week with fresh news, analysis and ideas from the CityMag team from the end of November. The integration of the site will be managed by local web developer, Lightbulb Digital.
CityMag willl continue to publish its quarterly print edition for collection across the CBD and inner-metro areas.
