Fewer reading print version of T-D

Circulation of the Richmond Times-Dispatch continues to plummet as readers drop their subscriptions and instead read news online.

Circulation was down 21 percent to 125,011 in the six-month period ending in March, according to figures from the Audit Bureau of Circulations.  

Sunday circulation fell about 13 percent to 171,510 at the Times-Dispatch.

According to figures released Monday, average weekday circulation fell 8.7 percent for newspapers as a whole in the six months that ended March 31, compared with the same period a year earlier. Sunday circulation fell 6.5 percent.

At the Washington Post, average weekday circulation fell 13.1 percent, and average Sunday circulation fell 8.2 percent.

According to a T-D story, the number of unique visits to the website is increasing dramatically. But that’s a mixed blessing because newspapers cannot sell online advertising for nearly as much as they can sell print advertising.
