It probably comes as no surprise to see print newspapers continue to drop as the digital editions continue to rise in the latest Audited Bureau of Circulation figures, from the Audited Media Association of Australia.

Below we’ve pulled together some of the most notable newspapers around the country and the changes between the print and digital elements.

News Corp’s new CEO Peter Tonagh said: “We are encouraged by the latest data release from the Audit Bureau of Circulation, which shows acceleration in the growth of our digital subscriptions, and some stabilisation of print circulation.

“The Australian now has over 73,000 digital weekday subscribers – up 11.5 per centYoY – while the Herald Sun has grown 26.3 per cent YoY to over 63,000 digital weekday subscribers.

“Last week’s emma data affirmed our position as Australia’s leading print and digital publisher, with a reach of over 14.8 million Australians each month or 83 per cent of the population, and leading positions in news, sport, food and business.

“We continue to see significant growth in digital engagement. All together we reach 10.3 million Australians 14+ each month via our digital network, which equates to 5.3 per cent growth YoY.

“The number of people accessing our network via mobile and tablet also continues to grow, with over 4.4 million Australians engaging with us each month on these devices, an increase of 9.6 per cent compared to a year ago.

“We were also pleased to note the most recent Nielsen online ratings, which once again placed news.com.au as Australia’s number one digital news brand; a position it has held for 13 consecutive months.”
