More sales success for 'The Independent'
Saturday 10 December 2005
The Independent continues to go from strength to strength, with yesterday's release of the audited circulation figures for November showing another year-on-year increase in readers.
In November, the average daily sale of The Independent was 263,449, representing an increase of 0.4 per cent on the same period last year. Meanwhile, the Independent on Sunday, in the first full month of its compact format, sold an average of 225,629, a rise of 6.3 per cent on November 2004.
Those figures come in the month when The Independent added to its haul of recent awards by being named Political Journal of the Year by the Political Studies Association. In their citation, the judges said: "The Independent's coverage has been sensational rather than sensationalist, always backed by good science, in-depth reporting and stark visual evidence."
Ivan Fallon, Chief Executive of Independent News and Media (UK), said yesterday: "We are delighted with the progress of the two Independent titles. In particular, the circulation increase for the new Independent on Sunday is very heartening for us all. We would like to thank our readers for their continuing support."
