Print media takes circulation knock

Feb 27 2012 08:57

Johannesburg - Newspapers have lost about 90 000 buyers in the past year, according to a report on Monday.

Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC) data showed that from October to December daily newspapers sold 97 000 fewer copies, or 6.7% less than in the same period in 2010, Business Day reported.

The ABC forecast that losses would continue as more consumers and advertisers opt for digital media.
