The Biggest Loser

No, I'm not referring to the reality show that has grossly overweight people competing to see who can shed the most pounds the fastest.

Editor & Publisher reports that the last 6 months have been bad for newspaper circulations across the country, but leading the way in the declines was The Miami Herald. According to The Audit Bureau of Circulations FAS-FAX report for the six-month period ending September 2006 the national average loss of daily circulation was 2.8 and weekend circulation was down 3.4% but the Herald easily dwarfed those loses with declines of 8.8% and 9.1% respectively. Ouch.

Looks like the folks at McClatchy have their hands full.

Hat tip to anonymous tipster. Have a tip about The Heralds, your anonymity will be preserved if you wish, please email me.

Maybe if they stop pandering to the Cubans, they would actually get English speaking readers and circulation will go up.

That's our very own Miami Hurled, leading the nation again. We're Number One! Oh wait, "Anonymous" things it should be "We're Numero Uno" because Spanish-speaking readers don't count toward circulation numbers.
