Australian newspapers post drop in sales

Australian newspaper sales continue to fall and the industry body for major publishers lays the blame on a slower news year rather the inroads made into circulation by online news sites. Sales of metropolitan and national newspapers fell by an average of three per cent in the March quarter compared with the same period a year ago, Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) data on Thursday showed. Fairfax Media Ltd’s The Australian Financial Review was the hardest hit, with the daily circulation of its Monday to Friday edition falling 8.6 per cent to 75,624 copies.
