The Week is a weekly British news magazine founded in 1995 which has also published a US edition since 2001 and a children's edition in the UK since 2015. Between 2008 and 2012 it also published an Australian edition.
The Week was founded in the United Kingdom by Jolyon Connell (formerly of the right-of-centre Sunday Telegraph) in 1995. In April 2001, the magazine began publishing an American edition; and an Australian edition followed in October 2008. Dennis Publishing founded by Felix Dennis publishes the UK edition and, until 2012, published the Australian edition. The Week Publications publishes the US edition.
The Australian edition of The Week ceased operation in October 2012. The final edition, its 199th, was released on 12 October 2012. At the end, it was selling 28,000 copies a week, with a readership of 83,000.
The various editions of the magazine provide perspectives on the week's current events and other news, as well as editorial commentary from global media, with the intent to provide readers with multiple political viewpoints. In addition to the above, the magazine covers a broad range of topics, including science, technology, health, the media, business and the arts.
In September 2007, the magazine's U.S. edition launched a daily website. Edited by Ben Frumin, the daily website carries the mission of the print magazine to the Internet, but also publishes original commentary from writers including David Frum, Robert Shrum, Will Wilkinson, Ryan Cooper, Daniel Larison, and Brad DeLong. The UK website, which was first published under the name The First Post, is edited by Holden Frith.
