NY Times Circulation Jumps 18 Percent, Daily News and Post See Declines

According to the new circulation report from the Alliance for Audited Media (AAM), The New York Times has been enjoying some success, but the New York Daily News and New York Post haven’t. For the period between March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2013, the Times’ circulation grew by 18 percent; while the Daily News and Post saw their numbers drop by 11 percent and 10 percent, respectively.

As of the end of last month, the Times had a circulation of 1,865,318, but that still wasn’t enough to take the top spot from the Wall Street Journal. The paper’s circulation experienced a solid 12 percent growth, and clocked in at 2,378,827.

Much like the Daily News (516,165) and Post (500,521), Newsday’s numbers left a lot to be desired. The Long Island daily saw circulation drop by five percent over the past year, down to 377,744.

Let the over celebration or casual dismissal of the numbers begin.
