US Newspapers See More Money from Circulation as Advertising Revenue Falls
Posted: 4/8/2013 | By: Dominic Rushe | The Guardian
Newspaper circulation revenue in the US grew in 2012 for the first time in a decade but overall the industry continued to lose money as advertising continued to fall away.
The boost to revenues came as more people subscribed to digital editions, according to data compiled by the Newspaper Association of America (NAA). Newspapers circulation revenues were $10.4bn in 2012, a 5% increase over the previous year and the first gain since 2003.
