Weekend Newspaper Readership down, Sunday Telegraph is most read

Defying the trend of many of its peers was the Saturday Daily Telegraph.

Australia’s best read weekend newspaper is again Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph with an average issue print readership of 826,000 – down 6% over the past year – ahead of southern stablemate Melbourne’s Sunday Herald Sun which has a print readership of 737,000 (down 12.7%).

Other major titles to decline included the Saturday Herald Sun down 15% to a readership of 667,000, The Weekend Australian down 6.2% to a readership of 590,000, the Saturday Sydney Morning Herald down 5.2% to 588,000 readers and the Sunday Mail in Queensland down 9.4% to a readership of 586,000.

Defying the trend of many of its peers was the Saturday Daily Telegraph in Sydney which increased its readership by 1% to 529,000 and was Australia’s seventh most widely read weekend newspaper, up from eighth in the year to September 2018.

Another strong performer over the past year was Schwarz Media’s The Saturday Paper, which increased its readership by 3.2% to 119,000.
