PAMCo shows how magazines are read across multiple platforms

Audience measurement company PAMCo has today released its second quarter of cross-platform audience readership figures for magazine brands, covering the period April 2017 to March 2018 and incorporating February 2018 comScore data.

The new data currency is a game-changer for the publishing industry, as the numbers now reflect the reality of how readers are consuming newspapers and magazines.

Magazine brands are now multi-platform products and, with the data laid out in the tables below, publishers and advertisers can see audience delivery across mobile, tablet, desktop and print - opening up many new opportunities to plan and trade audiences.

By way of example, PAMCo has revealed that the Radio Times has the highest monthly total brand reach out of all general weekly magazines, at 6.8m. The magazine also recorded the highest reach across all platforms except desktop, with a mobile reach of 3.7m making up more than half of its combined total.

The closest mobile competitor to the Radio Times is NME, with a smartphone reach of 2.4m. The now digital-only magazine also records a print reach of 567,000, dating back to the months before it closed its weekly print edition.

Total TV Guide had the lowest total brand reach out of all the weeklies, reaching just 469,000 readers - 422,000 from print.

In the monthly magazine category, BBC Top Gear leads the pack with a monthly total brand reach of 1.7m - recording similar figures for both print and mobile.

Gardeners' World had the highest monthly print reach out of the monthlies, with a reach of 813,000. It is has the second highest monthly total brand reach.

Esquire is bottom of the monthly magazines, with a total brand reach of 440,000.

The published media industry is the first medium to be able to measure audiences across all platforms - see the tables below for further detail.
