The amount the British public spends on magazines has topped the
£2bn mark for the first time, according to new research released on the
eve of the latest ABC circulation round-up.
figures show that people spent £2,031m on magazines last year, an
increase of £54m on the year before, despite the rise of the internet
and multi-channel TV.
However, sales of monthly titles dropped by
nearly seven per cent overall, with the overwhelming growth being in
the weekly sector, with the rise of lads’ mags Nuts and Zoo and
real-life titles like Take A Break and Pick Me Up.
