The Review About us

The Review Magazine

Marketing  | Advertising  | Media

Ken Custer headshotThe Review, up until April of 2017 was a monthly publication serving the advertising, marketing and media industries in Colorado and more than 15 organizations for more than 45 years. Each month’s issue included a feature pertinent to the industry, News Notes and a monthly calendar of organization events. Search and view the archives for The Review online here.

The Review (Advertising & Marketing Review) was founded by Bob & Willa Brown in 1977 and included information about the Denver Advertising Federation. Due to health reasons, the publication was sold to Mountain States Publishing. CSC Publishing, Ken Custer, then acquired the magazine in 1991. In April 2017, Ken Custer handed over the reins of publisher/owner to Carleen Clearwater, owner of Kickass Marketing and Creative. Relaunched as The About Pages, the magazine is now a quarterly magazine.

The mission of The Review was to cover the advertising, marketing and media industries in Colorado and the organization and people involved. In 2011 the publication moved to an online digital edition and continues to be a monthly publication on our website.

Since 1991, The Review has been known as the only source of information covering local advertising, marketing and media trends, events, and news in Colorado.

Ken Custer, The Connection King, remains involved as a mentor to Carleen and a columnist for The About Pages. Read his column, “The 411: Industry News, Kudos and Announcements” every quarter.
