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
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.
