History
   

Review Publishing Limited Partnership was formed in 1986 on the acquisition of two weekly papers (the South Philadelphia Review and the Welcomat) and Comp-Art, Inc. (a composition and type house) by an investor group led by Anthony Clifton. Comp-Art was dissolved in 1993 when each paper took its newspaper composition activity in-house.

Review Publishing prints approximately 200,000 copies of its papers each week and reaches approximately 600,000 readers in Philadelphia, and Atlantic and Cape May Counties (New Jersey).

The South Philly Review was established in 1947 and was later developed into three separate editions- the Review East, the Review West and the Review Chronicle. Since 1986, the South Philly Review has become an award-winning community newspaper that focuses on the news, goods and services chiefly of South Philadelphia.

In 1971, a sister paper (then called the Welcomat and since renamed PW-Philadelphia Weekly) was launched as a newspaper to protect the northern flank of the South Philly Review's distribution area, in Center City Philadelphia. Since then, PW-Philadelphia Weekly has been developed into an alternative weekly. It focuses on news, arts, entertainment and opinion in the Philadelphia area. It targets a well-defined, younger readership that is well-educated, affluent and professional.

PW-Philadelphia Weekly currently has the largest audited weekly circulation in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is one of the largest weeklies of its kind in North America.

Atlantic City Weekly In January 2000, Whoot!, located outside Atlantic City, became part of Review Publishing. Now renamed the Atlantic City Weekly, this year-round publication is the source for what's happening in South Jersey. Published every Thursday, it covers entertainment, casinos, dining, real estate, sports, movies, nightlife, gambling, news and photos of the local Atlantic City region's scene.
