Newspaper Circulation Rates Continue to Plummet

As reported by Editor and Publisher (with a hat tip to Free Republic), the daily circulation rate of America’s newspapers continued to fall the past six months:

“The Newspaper Association of America said on Monday that overall daily circulation for the six-month period ending September 2005 for 789 newspapers fell 2.6% to 45,153,192 copies. For the 627 papers analyzed, Sunday dropped 3.1% to 49,394,406.”

Some of the biggest casualties were the San Francisco Chronicle, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and The Daily News in Philadelphia.
