Scotland

Seven out of 10 Scots continue to read newspapers, either on print or digital, at least three to four times a week, a telephone survey conducted by Ipsos MORI Scotland, also called the Scottish Public Opinion Monitor, has revealed, AllMediaScotland.com reported yesterday.

While the affluence of area in which people live does not affect newspaper readership, the supposed disinterest of young readers towards newspaper content has been overstated, according to AllMediaScotland.com. Despite lower income households being more likely to have less or no Internet access, 70 percent of low income residents reported reading newspaper content regularly. This is almost equal to the 73 percent in the country's most affluent areas.

The detailed results of the telephone survey also found that the Daily Record is the most-read newspaper, with 18 percent of survey-takers saying they read the title. This is followed by Scottish News of the World and The Observer, at 0.5 percent, according to AllMediaScotland.

Online readership on news websites was recorded at 26 percent, according to the survey. The BBC website recorded the highest, at with 23 percent, followed by Sky News at 3 percent.

Scotland's free weekly business newspaper, Business7, plans to launch a daily e-mail news service comprised of weekday updates to its list of digital subscribers from the fifth of next month, AllMediaScotland.com reported.

This new e-mail service will be launched by the newspaper to keep its readers informed about the happenings in the Scottish business world, during the tenure of its summer break when the printed version of the weekly will cease publishing. The daily updates will be e-mailed to digital subscribers around 1 p.m. and the publication will resume its printing operations from Sept. 3.

"The stories we produce will also be uploaded to www.business7.co.uk that day so there will be a regular diet of fresh content on the site," Alasdair Northrop, editor-in-chief of Business7 told AllMediaScotland.com. "If demand for the service is strong then we may look to extend it when the print edition resumes on September 3."

A new free, full-colour, quarterly business magazine called BQ Scotland was also set to launch in Scotland on June 11, featuring business news, commentary from leading business people and profiles of Scotland's most inspirational entrepreneurs. No recent updates about its launch is yet made available.

A free, quarterly business magazine called BQ Scotland is set to launch in Scotland on June 11, AllmediaScotland reported. This new full-colour magazine will provide business news, commentary from leading business people and profiles of Scotland's most inspirational entrepreneurs.

Having successfully entered the market with separate BQ editions for Yorkshire and the North-East of England in the last two years, the Tyne and Weir-based Room501 publisher will now aim to reach affluent influential businessmen and women, such as directors, owners, managers, entrepreneurs and opinion formers across Edinburgh, Glasgow and the central belt.

"BQ Scotland wants to get to the heart and soul of Scotland's business people and find out what drives, inspires and motivates them towards their ambitions," Alistair Fleming, project manager of Room501 Publishing told AllmediaScotland. "Each quarter, BQ will bring its readership a wealth of business intelligence and information, whilst looking ahead to forthcoming events and reporting on recent developments that will have a significant impact on the Scottish business landscape."

Hoping for a broader appeal, the magazine will carry regular features on things like commercial property, wine, fashion motoring and business lunches, Fleming said.

The few newspapers flourishing despite the general current decline in circulation appear to have one thing in common: they give readers what they want, but can't get anywhere else. It is this philosophy that drives today's launch of Appleton Journal, a print weekly aimed at delivering local news typically snubbed by other media, according to WLUK-TV.

"We're basically a scrapbook for moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas, that's all we are," said Times-Villager Newspaper Group General Manager Bart Landsverk. The Appleton Journal is the media group's fourth paid weekly serving Wisconsin's Fox Valley, in the United States.

The same holds true for the Shaw Newspaper Group, the third-oldest continually-owned family media enterprise in the United States, according to the Public Broadcasting System. "Our franchise is local information," President and CEO Thomas Shaw was quoted as saying on Nightly Business Report. "Everything else in the electronic age is world news, national news, even regional news has become a commodity and people can get it just about anywhere. But people cannot get the information we provide our community anywhere but from us."
