Roy Morgan has released the latest readership results for Australian newspapers, for the 12 months to September 2019. Now 15.4 million Australians aged 14+ (74%) read or access newspapers in an average seven-day period via print or online, a fall of 3.7 per cent from a year ago. The standout performer over the past year is again ‘The Australian Financial Review’, which increased its total cross-platform readership by 17.1 per cent to 1,599,000; this was driven by a substantial increase in its digital audience (up 24.6 per cent to 1,359,000). ‘The Sydney Morning Herald’ is still Australia’s most widely-read masthead, with a cross-platform audience of 4,209,000, which is virtually unchanged on a year ago. Meanwhile, ‘Good Weekend’ remains Australia’s most widely-read newspaper inserted magazine, with print readership of 825,000 (down 25.2 per cent over the last year). These are the latest findings from the Roy Morgan Single Source survey of 49,462 Australians aged 14+ in the 12 months to September 2019.
