ABCs: All the figures for regional weeklies

Only a handful of paid-for weekly newspapers increased their sales during 2013 according to today’s ABC figures.

Here are the figures for all the paid-for and free titles listed alphabetically by county.

The list includes titles whose sales are audited six-monthly and those audited annually.  In the latter case, the sales figure given is an average of the whole of 2013 rather than just the second half of the year.

Around 100 titles, mainly from Johnston Press and Local World, are no longer members of the ABC so their figures do not appear.

    Distinct lack of JP titles in this lot.
    How telling.

    Awful to read these figures.
    Some papers which had over 30,000 weeklly figures not so many years ago are now in the mid teens. More than half circulation lost…… and it will not improve. The slide will continue.
