February 2017 ABC Circulations

February ABC’s were released and it’s the usual swings and roundabouts. In the morning market, the Mirror and The Sun saw the biggest falls with the Daily Star managing to maintain roughly where it was last month. The Daily Mail’s decline can be partially attributed to a decline in bulks and to a lesser extend a decline in retail sales. The Daily Star on Sunday defied all odds and managed a 1,300 increase in sales whilst the Sun on Sunday and The Sunday Mirror felt a drop of roughly 700 copies each. The Sunday Times lost 1,500 over the counter as their bulks remains roughly the same as last month. Morning Market down 9,000 on the month and 16,000 on the year while the Sunday market is down 11,000 on the month and 33,000 on the year.   Title Feb-17 Jan-17 Feb-16 M/M Y/Y % Y/Y % M/M Daily Mirror 34,080 35,433 38,259 -1,353 -4,179 -4% -11% Daily Record 267 257 260 10 7 4% 3% Irish Daily Star 50,718 50,940 53,947 -222 -3,229 0% -6% The Sun 54,308 56,399 58,493 -2,091 -4,185 -4% -7% Tabloids 139,373 143,029 150,959 -3,656 -11,586 -3% -8% Daily Express 2,486 2,501 2,407 -15 79…
