Consumer ABCs: News & Current Affairs

Consumer ABCs: News & Current Affairs

With the Covid-19 pandemic initiating nationwide school closures and keeping both parents and children in their homes, Dennis Publishing's The Week Junior recorded a strong performance for the first six months of 2020, growing its circulation by 18.4%.

The title, which is only published in print, was also up 22.1% year-on-year, reaching a total circulation of 85,578.

However, other than The Oldie (which held steady with a circulation of 47,170), the rest of the news and current affairs market - which are all print-only titles - saw its circulation figures take a hit.

Private Eye, the most popular of those titles to report half year figures in this market, saw its print circulation dip -3.9% period-on-period and -1.1% YoY to 231,073.

Dennis' The Week shifted 135,779 copies, down -4.2% PoP and -6.5% YoY, while MoneyWeek's circulation endured the worst knock, falling -20.8% PoP and -15.6% YoY to 28,493.

Elsewhere, The Economist achieved a circulation of 906,611 with its group of worldwide titles - no change over H1, but an increase of 6% over the year.
