It is owned and run by Fairfax Digital, the online subsidiary of Fairfax Media, publishers of Melbourne's The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and other mastheads, plus subject-focused websites and business-centered magazine titles. The founding managing editor was Mitchell Murphy;[3] the current managing editor is Simon Holt.[4]

The publication started with 14 journalists in an attempt by Fairfax to break into the South East Queensland market, competing against the website of News Corporation's incumbent The Courier-Mail.
