Business weekly The National Business Review has changed hands.

NBR reports publisher Barry Colman has sold the media company to its chief executive Todd Scott.

Mr Colman, who turns 65 this year, says the time is right for the move following extensive restructuring of the business in the last four years, including developing its online operations.

Mr Colman bought NBR for $1 from Fairfax in the late 1980s.
