Star circulation falls

Dateline: Tue 28 Oct 2008

Thanks to Gannettblog and Editor and Publisher for keeping a wicked eye on the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) latest numbers. Here's what Jim Hopkins has to say at G-blog:

"Daily circulation at the nation's newspapers fell 4.6% in the six months ended Sept. 30, and Sunday circulation dropped 4.8%, new industry data out today show.

"The declines were slightly worse than the year-ago pace, when circulation fell 2.6% daily, and 4.6% Sundays, trade journal Editor & Publisher says.

"The figures were compiled by the industry-supported Audit Bureau of Circulations. ABC made public the data for the top 25 daily and Sunday papers among the 571 U.S. newspapers it audits. Gannett papers I found on the lists:

"* USA Today: 2.29 million daily, up 0.01%; no Sunday edition

* The Arizona Republic: 361,333 daily, down 5.5%; 463,036 Sunday, down 3.7%

* The Detroit Free Press: 298,243 daily, down 6.8%; 605,369 Sunday, down 3.7%

* The Indianapolis Star: 244,796 daily, down 3.3%; 321,760 Sunday, down 4.6%"
