Daily Newspapers

This category declined by 2.8% on the previous quarter, up by 0.2% on Q1 2019 (2.6%) and by 9.2% on the prior year, which is slightly lower than the massive 10% decline in Q1 2019.

The Cape Times and the Cape Argus are the only two newspapers that increased on the previous quarter and the prior year. No other newspaper in the category increased over the prior year.

Bukedde, Business Day, The Mercury, The Daily News, Pretoria News and Diamond Fields Advertiser all increased over the previous quarter. Bukedde increased by 4.7% and the Cape Times by 3.4% on the previous quarter.

Weekly Newspapers

The only category to increase on the previous quarter, Weekly Newspapers saw an 8.2% increased the previous quarter. This was in keeping with its slight decline of half a percentage point in Q1 2019 and the result of a new member. The decline on the prior year was only 2.9%, a lot less than Q1 2019’s 7.9% - also the result of the new member.

The Mmegi Reporter increased by 16.1% and Lesotho Times by 2.6% over the previous quarter. The Post and the Mail & Guardian both increased over the previous quarter and prior year, with the Mail & Guardian showing increases of over 1%.

The Monitor (formerly The Mmegi Monitor) showed the biggest drop with a -45.4% over the previous quarter.

Weekend Newspapers

Unlike its modest decline on the previous quarter, Q1 2019, of 1.6%, Q2 2019 saw the category decline by 4.2% on the previous quarter. The decline on the prior year matched its decline in Q1 2019 of 10.4%.

The category saw no major movements up or down, with the Weekend Argus, Sunday Tribune, City Press, Saturday World, Independent on Saturday and The Southern Cross all showing increases on the previous quarter.

The Weekend Argus is the only newspaper in the category to also show an increase on the prior year. The Sunday Mail, Pretoria News Saturday, and Beeld Saturday also increased on the prior year.

Local Newspapers

In Q1 2019 Local Newspapers was the only category to increase on the previous quarter. In a reversal of fortune, Q2 2019 saw the category decline by 4.8% on the previous quarter. The decline of 8.6% on the prior year for Q2 2019 is in keeping with its’ 8.1% decline in Q1 2019.

In the category the Lowvelder/Laevelder (Tuesday), Lowvelder/Laevelder (Friday) and Mpumalanga News continued with the positive increases made in Q1 2109, with both increasing on the previous quarter and prior year.

Good increases were also made over the previous quarter and prior year by Streeknuus Delmas, Talk of the Town, Ladysmith Gazette, and the Zululand Observer Weekend (formerly Friday).

Free Newspapers

Q1 2019’s small decline of 1.4% on the prior quarter continued in Q2 2019, but with a decline of one percent only. However, the6.2% decline on the prior year for Q2 is more than double Q1 2019’s 3.0% decline.

As per Q1 2019, some newspapers in this category continued to show good increases. Hazyview Herald increased by 49.4% over the previous quarter and 194.9% over the prior year. Tame Times Weekly also increased over the previous quarter (15.8%) and prior year (16.5%).

Phoenix Sun built on its gains in Q1 2019 with an increase of 36.8% on the prior year. Village Talk also increased on the prior year, as did Tongaat & Verulam Tabloid, Bloemfontein Courant (formerly Krant), NewsHorn Mpumalanga and Midkaroo Express.
