Few surprises in the latest audits and readership figures, with print continuing its glacial slide. And, as usual, there are more than a few happy customers (like Good, Next, Metro, Dish, Mindfood, Rugby World, OHBaby! Habitat, Healthy Food Guide, Waikato Times and the Greymouth Star – to name just a few).
Our charts (below) are based on simple falls and gains – and without going into detail (for that you must read the data) this produces a brutal result. One percentage point down – and you’re toast. As we say, to get the full picture, readers need to turn to the raw data (scroll down).
We used the latest three-month survey period, and compared the figures to the corresponding figures from 2013.
All metro weekly and daily newspapers fell, ditto all the Sundays – but in every case, the falls were generally minute.
