A Sign Of The Time? Are Media’s Diabetic Living Records 11% Year-On-Year Readership Growth

Are Media has experienced its sixth consecutive quarter of year-on-year readership growth, according to new Roy Morgan data.

Are Media chief executive officer, Jane Huxley, said: “As we enter our sixth consecutive quarter of year-on-year growth, it is abundantly clear that the power of the magazine medium is being embraced by Australian women.

“The fact more women across every life stage are taking the time to read our magazines is something we never take for granted. Magazines have a remarkable ability to connect with women and to influence, inform and inspire, turning connection into action through our audiences of intent. In uncertain times, magazines also offer the luxury of escape.

“We continue to be focused on supercharging our omnichannel brands, powered by content and shopping experiences we know Australian women love,” she said.
