Posted at 02:30 2009-08-19
PokerNews in conjunction with PokerNetwork are pleased to announced today the merger between PokerNews (Australia, Asia, and Pacific) magazine and Bluff Australasia magazine. Following the merger, Bluff Australasia will no longer be published and the magazine will proceed under the PokerNews (Australia, Asia, and Pacific) banner.
The region’s two dominant poker media brands will be brought together with this merger, which in turn will provide more resources to further build the PokerNetwork brand.
“We’re excited by the opportunities to build on the foundations formed by both brands and establishing PokerNetwork as the preeminent poker media organization in this region,” said Sean Callander, the newly named publisher for PokerNews (Australia, Asia, and Pacific) magazine.
Kirsty Mullins will remain the editor for PokerNews (Australia, Asia, and Pacific), Heath Chick will remain the editor for PokerNetwork, and Stephen Doig will become the general manager of PokerNews (Australia, Asia, and Pacific).
“We are delighted to be working with Sean and Stephen,” said Damon Rasheed, Chief Consultant for PokerNews. “Joining forces will enable us to take our magazine to the next level, by using their considerable expertise, which will benefit all poker fans and advertisers in the region.”
PokerNews (Australia, Asia and Pacific) magazine will continue to be published bi-monthly, with plans for monthly distribution, as well as Asian-language editions to begin in early 2010.
The third edition of the PokerNews (Australia, Asia and Pacific) magazine is expected to hit the shelves very soon, while PokerNetwork will look to have an increased presence at major poker events throughout the region.
In addition the Bluff Australia radio show will be rebranded the PokerNetwork Hour and will replace the current PokerNetwork Radio show. You can listen to the PokerNetwork Hour live every Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning at 12am-1am on Melbourne's SEN 1116 AM, or listen via streaming radio on the SEN website. Podcast downloads will continue to be available from the PokerNetwork website.
