Quiz #2: How regional are you?

A few weeks back we ran a 'How regional are you?' quiz in an effort to show that there is a risk those in the marcomms sector can fall into an urban echo chamber (as last year's Nielsen survey showed) and forget about the important role the regions play in the Kiwi economy—and the important role newspapers still play in those regions (who's going to argue with Warren Buffett and WPP's Sir Martin Sorrell?). The average score was 70 percent, but just seven percent of all the respondents got all the questions right, so you've still got some work to do, city slickers. Reckon you can beat that? Then put your regional knowledge to the test and take the second quiz. All those who complete it will go into the draw to win another two night Air New Zealand Deluxe Mystery Break for two somewhere in New Zealand*. PLUS: find out who won the prize from the first round.

Newspaper readership and circ results: Otago Daily Times, Nelson Mail and Wairarapa Times-Age buck the downward trend

For some time now, reporting on the newspaper results has been a repetitive exercise of commenting on the downward trends in the print industry. Each time the results come out, it again confirms that the print is in decline. Rather predictably, the latest slew of results again told a similar story. However, despite all the doomsday prophesying in the industry, there were a handful of standout papers that bucked the overall trend and successfully managed to lift their readership results. And none more so than the Otago Daily Times.

Reach vs. revenue, smiles vs. sadness: a look at the latest newspaper numbers

Last week, after a few months of subscribing to the print version of The Herald, my wife decided to cancel it (despite my initial reservations given we have access to the internet, I actually quite enjoyed getting the paper version). With the circulation declines in recent years, this certainly wouldn't have been an unusual conversation for those in the subscriptions department, but she said they sounded quite sad when she told them the news. And while there are a few areas of positivity in the latest readership numbers, putting a smiling man on the first page of the Nielsen readership report might have been overly optimistic. PLUS: Nielsen's figures on how readership is split across print and online.

Media Munchies: Theresa Gattung

Theresa Gattung was made chief executive of Telecom at the very young age of 37 and, after eight years in that stressful role, she took a well-earned break in 2007. Now she’s putting her efforts—and her capital—into a much smaller business, food delivery service My Food Bag. And with a 40 percent stake in a company that’s expecting revenues of $50 million this year, she obviously knows how to pick ‘em. Here’s how the self-proclaimed uncool entrepreneur spends her media time.

Community and rural papers hold strong in latest newspaper readership and circ figures

Last week's report on magazine readership and circulation figures once again reiterated that print is undergoing a period of transition as audiences shift their media consumption online. And looking at Nielsen's readership and ABC's circulation results, it's more of the same. However, there was some good news for the rural and community publications.
