Business Spectator was launched on 30 October 2007. It was established by journalists Alan Kohler, Stephen Bartholomeusz, Robert Gottliebsen, and Eric Beecher, with financial backing from John Wylie and Mark Carnegie, and with a target audience of business people.[2]

Australian Independent Business Media was sold to News Limited in 2012 for A$30 million, after Fairfax Media was out-bidded[4][5]
