Are Media has delivered again in the new Roy Morgan readership numbers, with strong growth across its print magazines for the fifth consecutive quarter.
Highlighting the ongoing resurgence in Australians’ consumption of magazines, the combined readership of Are Media’s print titles increased seven per cent year-on-year in September 2023 to an average of 6.06 million readers a month, versus the total print market increase of less than one per cent year-on-year.
Are Media CEO, Jane Huxley, said: “In tough economic times, magazines are an affordable ‘luxury’ and provide a break from the worries and pressures of day-to-day life. At the same time, they represent a way to escape the digital and social media noise.
“The connection and community offered by magazines are very powerful and keep people coming back every week or every month. We’re thrilled with the consistently strong results we have seen over the past five quarters. It’s a huge achievement and I’d like to congratulate all of our teams, who deliver the most engaging content for women in Australia.”
