MW is the leading media trade publication in Australia in both readership and industry respect. Achieving this has been a 33-year process, since being founded by Philip Luker in 1990 before being acquired by James Manning in 1999, and being helmed by James for over 20 years. Now under the day-to-day stewardship of Trent Thomas, Mediaweek has a monthly average of 300,000 users a month and the #1 readership in the sector.

Focusing on the four pillars of Media, Agency, Marketing, and Thought Leadership, MW also now offers a robust event offering to clients with the industry-leading Mediaweek100 being considered one of the highest-regarded events in the industry today, as well as the popular Mediaweek Next of the Best Awards that targets and celebrates the industry leaders of today and tomorrow.

Over the last several years, using its strong foundation of quality content, Mediaweek has also built a powerful bespoke content offering for clients with a strong and diverse range of products that includes custom-made podcasts, video series, written content, and events. With the editorial team now led by Brittney Rigby, Mediaweek moves forward as a content-first company with a clear focus on three sectors: Media Owners, Agencies, and Marketers. MW has a belief that a foundation of quality and respected content aimed at these audiences will deliver the best result for our clients and partners.
