Northern Star ranked among Top 10 papers

THE Northern Star has been ranked among the top 10 daily newspapers in the country in readership results.

The Star had the 10th best readership performance of any masthead in the country in the year to the end of March. Paper and website readership held better than some of its bigger rivals, including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, Herald Sun and Gold Coast Bulletin. The EMMA rankings for Monday-Friday readership came out last week.

According to the March EMMA figures, an average of 38,000 readers accessed The Northern Star Monday to Friday.

EMMA stands for Enhanced Media Metrics Australia and is Australia's cross-platform audience insights survey.

EMMA measures how many people read the Star across all platforms, print and online, including mobile, desktop and tablet.

Northern Star editor David Kirkpatrick thanked readers for sticking with the newspaper in its 140th year of operation.

"While the newspaper turned 140 this month it is now just one of the platforms we present our unique local content on," he said.

The Star's parent company APN Australian Regional Media reaches over 2.1 million people every month across our 12 daily regions.
