AUSTRALIAN newspaper sales remained robust in the December quarter.


An interesting report in the Australian. It shows the same trend is continuing with newspapers that I blogged about in February 2008. Generally, the national papers are up and the state newspapers slightly down.

Overall compared with international newspapers sales overseas for example in the USA and Britain we are doing well especially considering the current economic crisis.

From what is happening, I think the newspapers have delivered as good a result as can be expected.

Newsagents should be more concerned with magazines than newspapers as the results for weekly magazines from the Audit Bureau of Circulation are just dismal, the magazine companies blame the economic times but I think it is the internet.
