Sunday Magazine Number One Read Newspaper

23 February 2005

Sunday Magazine Number One Read Newspaper Insert Magazine

The latest Nielsen readership results confirm the strength of Sunday Magazine within the Fairfax New Zealand portfolio of titles. The Sunday Star-Times remains New Zealand's most read newspaper based on average issue readership of 680,000 people 10 yrs+, despite the introduction of a new competitor title into the Auckland market in October.

Sunday Magazine has a sectional readership of 497,000* aged 10+ which equates to 72% of Sunday Star-Times total readership - a phenomenal result for sectional readership and after only six months data, clearly placing it as New Zealand's number one read newspaper inserted magazine.

"This result is very heartening for a magazine that is only eight months old, and we believe that our determination to produce a "real magazine" on quality paper with first-class writing and photography has resonated with readers", comments Lauren Quaintance, editor Sunday Magazine.

"Sunday has always benefited from drawing on the journalistic talent of New Zealand's newspaper of the year**, and the magazine expertise of Fairfax Magazines' Lifestyle Division. We have a young and talented team and we look forward to building on these results in 2005," comments Amanda Murphy, general manager - lifestyles, Fairfax Magazines.

"This is a magazine making a key difference in the market place. It is a quality Sunday magazine that is head and shoulders above its competitors. This is a fantastic first result for us and we look forward to building on this initial success going forward."
