Newspaper circulation continues to slide

Almost every Dutch national newspaper had fewer readers in the first three months of this year, according to the latest figures from the Hoi circulation figure institute.

Only specialist newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad managed to increase its circulation figures with a 3% rise to 67,000 copies a day.
All four national papers owned by the PCM publishing group had fewer readers for their paper editions. The evening paper NRC Handelsblad booked the sharpest decline, at 6.2%. However, the NRC and Volkskrant both increased the number of internet subscribers, Hoi said.
