Sunday newspapers continued to experience circulation declines over the first half of 2017, according to today’s ABC figures.
Sunday Life’s figures were also featured in the ABC’s Island of Ireland statistics, which were published last week.
They were among nine Sunday and weekly titles to have their full figures published because most of the big regional publishers opt for annual figures, which were released in February.
They retain separate editions for each patch featuring a localised front page and sports coverage, and are now known as either known as the ‘Walsall Advertiser incorporating the Great Barr Observer’ or ‘the Great Barr Observer incorporating the Walsall Advertiser’ depending on where it is distributed.
The full list of weeklies and Sunday newspapers, in order of year-on-year percentage change, is as follows:
|Cumberland & Westmorland Herald||12,491||-6.2|
|Isle of Wight County Press||23,927||-7.4|
|Surrey & Hants Star Courier||34,067||N/A|
|Great Barr Observer||15,724||N/A|
