UK Readership – NRS Jan-Dec 2013NRS

It’s infinitely easier to amalgamate some of the data that’s appeared of late in one block. They all have a close association to each other, all hail from the UK and therefore it’s as well to marshal them all together. The data relates to the latest quarter of the NRS readership survey and the recent […]

2013 JNRS Newspaper Readership

With all the data we received yesterday, we nearly overlooked the readership data via the JNRS. It’s unfortunate (or otherwise) that they use the release date for the Island of Ireland report to also release the findings of the readership survey.  The survey is conducted face to face with 7,000 adults annually and questions them […]

ABC Sunday Newspaper Circulation July December 2013

totla sunday market

The Sunday Market, like the morning, dropped 6% year on year, down 54,000 to 811,000. Unlike the morning market where there was a somewhat consistency to the declines the papers in the Sunday Market had very mixed fortunes. If falling circulation still manages to get you the title of ‘best performer’, then the Sunday Independent […]

ABC Morning Newspaper Circulation July December 2013

total morn jd 13

Morning Market: The first point of reference is that the morning market has fallen below 500k for the first time and, as can see from the various charts accompanying the post, there is no sign of any reversal of fortunes. The big fallers year on year are the Red Tops who collectively are down 8%. […]

Irish Newspaper Circulation January 2014

January, thankfully, showed a change in the outlooks of the tabloids, most notably the Daily Mirror bouncing back some 7,000 copies on its December figure and the Sun followed suit gaining nearly 3,000. Still the year on year figure is bleak down between 5% and 9% – the latter percent being the Irish Daily Star. […]

Newstalk

Newstalk 2013 Q4

Pat Kenny’s figure is the one that everyone will discuss here. 98,000 listeners for a combined survey with Tom Dunne and an increase of 81% on the year. But, as I speculate here, there may be further to go. In comparison to the previous survey, it looks as if it hasn’t exactly spilled over that […]

 Today FM dropped marginally by 9,000 or 2%. Ian Dempsey managed a very decent 8% increase, but Ray D’Arcy and the KC show were obviously feeling the pinch from format changes elsewhere.

2FM

2FM 2014 Q4

2FM managed a small increase in their listenership over the year but the underlying figures show that a large tranche of their programmes did not do well. Most interestingly, the slot that ‘took it for the team’ is the one that excelled in the figures – “Breakfast With Hector” adding 12,000 or 10% year on […]

RTE1

RTE1 2013 Q4

Morning Ireland added a few listeners as did John Murray (although absent for a large portion of the survey). In what’s now a very competitive morning slot Séan O’Rourke managed an increase of 6,000 on last year’s figure – but it’s only fair to say that it is down 7,000 on the previous survey (Q3) […]
