Consumer ABCs: News & Current Affairs

No doubt helped by fodder from Brexit and the US Election, Private Eye reported record sales during the July to December period, with its circulation up 8.74% period-on-period and 8.9% year-on-year.

The Ian Hislop-edited title now has circulation of more than 250,200 - the highest in its 55-year history.

The Spectator Group also performed particularly well, with circulation up 7.3% PoP and 13.8% over the year - the biggest yearly increase in the market.

Unsurprisingly, Economist Worldwide Sales Group continues to lead the market by a long way with a steady print and digital circulation of almost 1.5 million.

In the UK, The Economist also remained fairly stable, with a small -0.3% PoP decline in circulation seeing the title secure a circulation of a little less than 235,700.

The Week followed closely behind - up 1% over the period and the year to reach 206,300.

Not such good for Time Magazine (British Isles), however, which was down by 11.7% over the year to finish with a circulation of 92,400.

Elsewhere in the UK, BBC History Magazine was up a tiny 0.02% to 97,600, while Sky at Night was down -4.6% YoY to 23,500.
