News Weekly is an Australian current affairs magazine, published by the National Civic Council, with its main headquarters in Balwyn, Victoria.[1][2] It also has offices in Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia.[3]

History and profile

News Weekly was founded by B. A. Santamaria and first published in September 1943, under the name Freedom; it later changed its name to Australia's national news-weekly.[3] It changed its name to its current name in 1946–47.[4][5][5][6]

News weekly adheres to the five primacies of the National Civic Council; promoting the national interest, assisting small enterprise, supporting the family, fostering the tested values derived from our Judeo-Christian heritage and defending life.[3]

According to the Kempsey Library listing, News Weekly provides analysis of current cultural, social, political, educational, and economic trends in Australia, focusing on ethics.[7]

In 1955, it had a circulation of 30,000 copies.[8] The magazine's current editor is Peter Kelleher.[9]

Associated groups include the Thomas More Centre and the Australian Family Association.[3]
