circulation decline

Spanish weekly A pie de calle recently hit the streets of Madrid with a circulation of 100,000 copies, PRNoticias.com reported on Tuesday. Although it currently only serves Madrid's community, the 24-pages free weekly is aiming to have 12 local editions by 2011.

The newspaper was created as an alternative to the existing local media outlets, which are "very focused on the small municipality or district," said director Concha Minguela to Periodista Digital. "There has never been a regional newspaper in a broader context such as in Galicia La Voz accompanied by several local supplements," she explained.

The newspaper also plans to increase its circulation to 500,000 copies and expand its distribution to Barcelona, Sevilla, Bilbao and Valencia, Comunicar.info pointed out.

Although some researches claim newspaper sales in Australia have remained stable throughout the years, new study finds that considering the country's growing population, sales have been in a decline significantly, according to the Media Alliance in Walkley Media Conference this week, mUmBRELLA reported.

The organisation combined data from Audit Bureau of Circulation with Australian Bureau of Statistics population numbers, and calculated an approximate measure of metro and national paper sales per capita over the last two decades.

Even though considering the margin for error, the trend has been downwards, from sales of nearly 160 papers per 1000 population in 1991, to less than 110 per 1000 in 2010, mUmBRELLA reported,

The Australia population has increased by about a quarter to more than 22 million, while newspaper sales have decreased slightly.

Europe, once the continent with the highest number of free newspapers, has seen the "largest drop" in circulation and the amount of titles available, Newspaper Innovation informed yesterday.

"In 2007 there were 140 papers with a circulation of 27 million, in 2010 this is down to 87 papers with a circulation of 19.3 million," the blog reported.

Graph: Newspaper Innovation

As the overall number of dailies has decreased to less than 200 since 2008 - when it reached its peak with 266 dailies and an average circulation of 42 million copies - "in Latin America and Asia there is no sign of decline."

According to Newspaper Innovation, the fact that there are less papers per market (3.6 per country) is "a more healthy model than in 2007 and 2008," when there were 4.7 per nation.

The fragile rally enjoyed by U.S. media groups over the course of the summer may have come to an end, Editor & Publisher reported yesterday.

Shares of all newspaper companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange closed down on the session - most by double-digit percentages - following the Audit Bureau of Circulations first-ever double-digit percentage decline in overall newspaper circulation.

Some media business analysts, however, called for putting the figures in perspective. Slate pointed out that due to aggressive price hikes at several newspaper groups - including Gannett and The New York Times - circulation revenues actually rose, however modestly, even as the rest of the market remained in a state of near freefall.

USA Today reported this morning that Wall Street as a whole may be headed for a sluggish "u-shaped" recovery rather than a quick "v-shaped" snap back into economic health. The S&P 500-stock index sank 2 percent to 1042.63 yesterday, extending its recent pullback to 5 percent. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 99 points, or 1 percent, at 9783, dipping below 9800 for the first time since Oct. 9, according to yesterday's Wall Street Journal.
