Nielsen’s latest CMI release shows that New Zealand’s news publishers are reaching more than 3 million New Zealanders across print and online every week, up from 2.86 million last quarter with daily newspaper readership up 10% in the past year too*. The strength of print readership is even more prominent in the rural community with close to 7-in-10 rural respondents reading a newspaper in the past week^ compared with 6-in-10 New Zealanders*.

Advertising in a premium, highly trusted, highly engaging news environment has been proven to result in an effective ad#. Coupled with the fact that three times more people trust ads they see in newspapers versus ads on social media+, there’s no better time to show your support by putting your brand behind NZ publishers and local journalism.
