The Jewish Chronicle is claiming a circulation jump of 3.67 per cent year-on-year for the six months to June.
Editor Stephen Pollard emailed his staff this morning quoting ABC figures – then placed the email online –saying the JC had an average circulation of 31,556 over the six months to the end of June compared to a circulation of 30,436 in the six months to the end of June last year – a jump of 1,120.
‘Given the context of steep falls across the industry – some national newspapers have been falling by 15% year-on-year – these are stunningly good figures,’Pollard wrote.
‘Especially without any special campaigns or advertising. We are increasing circulation based on the best possible reason – good solid journalism, giving readers something they don’t want to miss out on.”
