Seattle Times Grows As The Competition Quits, But The Average Newspaper Readership Is Down

Daily circulation of The Seattle Times has grown by nearly 50 percent in the initial period since the Seattle Post-Intelligencer stopped publishing a newspaper in mid-March, according to Times reporter Lynda V. Mapes.

That was just about the only good (?) news in AP's report that Audit Bureau of Circulation that circulation of the average U.S. newspaper from 395 dailies declined 7.1 percent in the October-March period from the same six-month span in 2007-2008.

Note to sales: you know that this is opportunity knocking, don't you?
