Bauer Media has announced that it will be permanently closing Cosmopolitan Australia.
The decision was made weeks after Bauer would not answer questions about why Cosmopolitan Bride, the brand's quarterly bridal publication, was absent from newsstands.
In a statement this morning, Bauer Media ANZ CEO Paul Dykzeul shared the devastating news.
"Today, Bauer Media announced the closure of the Cosmopolitan brand in Australia, with the December issue being the last. It has not been an easy decision to make, however, the commercial viability of the magazine in Australia is no longer sustainable.
The final edition of Cosmopolitan Australia will be released in December.
