With weekend newspaper readership up 29% year-on-year*

Nielsen’s latest CMI results, released today, confirm New Zealanders continue to have a strong relationship with newspapers, and this love of print has grown throughout 2020. Nearly 1.6 million New Zealanders are getting their news and information from their favourite weekend edition – this includes Metropolitan/Regional Saturday editions and Sunday newspapers.

The good news for newspapers doesn’t stop there with daily newspapers readership up 14% in the past year too. Daily newspaper readership reaches nearly 2.1 million New Zealanders each week based on daily newspaper weekly coverage.
