Circulation, pt. 2

Just to finish the thought from yesterday, Daily News circulation dropped 7.3% from a year ago to 146,000. That's not good news in the already threadbare L.A. Newspaper Group empire. A rumor swept through the Daily News yesterday that Dean Singleton plans to sell the building in Warner Center, but it's apparently still just gossip. As noted, the Times is down 4.2% to a daily circ of 815,000 and down 4.7% to 1,173,000 on Sundays. In its story today, the Times says its website traffic was up 15% over a year ago to 65 million page views in January. Meanwhile, up in Santa Barbara, the News-Press lost 9.5% of its daily circulation and now sells just 38,000 copies a day.
