Bauer Media’s TV Week Soap Extra has issued its final edition, ending a nearly 2 year run as a stand alone magazine.
Editor Erin McWhirter told TV Tonight the focus on Aussie and international soaps would merge with its parent mag, the long-running TV Week.
“The decision has been made to transition the content from TV Week Soap Extra into its parent title, TV Week, one of Bauer Media Group’s biggest selling magazines,” she said.
“Whilst Soap Extra has attained a loyal following since launch, due to the relative size of the soap market the business decision has been made that the popular content from Soap Extra is better placed within TV Week.
“After the last issue of Soap Extra, TV Week magazine will have an additional six page special of Soap Extra content.”
Soap Extra launched in January 2014.
