TI Media today announces highlights from its latest set of ABC results for the Jul-Dec 2019 period.
Angie O’Farrell, group managing director, women’s weeklies, lifestyle, home interest, real life and TV, says: “The latest ABC results reflect a really solid performance by brands operating in a number of our key markets. At the newsstand, TI Media remains the most valuable publisher in the TV weeklies sector, with our portfolio enjoying healthy revenue growth during 2019 to increase our share of total print by 0.6%. Once again, What’s On TV proved to be the title of choice at Christmas with its ever popular festive double issue outselling its competitors with 1.66m copies sold.
“While the Women’s Weeklies sector remains one of the most competitive, we’ve stayed true to our belief that this audience will pay a premium price for quality editorial and that’s reflected in our £24.7m RSV for 2019 and our increased volume share of the market. Woman’s Weekly once more outpaces its competitors to be the biggest selling title for 21 periods in a row while both Woman and Woman’s Own outperform the lifestyle sub-sector year-on-year.
“2019 saw the launch of our award-winning Heart of Britain research into the valuable but often overlooked audience previously referred to as mass-market women. We’re now looking at multi-platform innovations to deepen the unrivalled relationship we have with this key audience and enhance the role these brands play in their lives, from cover choice to new editorial franchises.
“In the Lifestyle sector, woman&home continues to deliver stand-out content month-in, month-out – on seven occasions in the last year the title outsold its competitors to be the biggest selling title at the newsstand – while our strong focus on editorial redevelopment in the Homes portfolio continues to pay off. Ideal Home remains the biggest selling title in the mainstream market, alongside solid performances at the newsstand from Country Homes & Interiors, up 1.5% on the period, and Livingetc, which was the top-seller in its sub sector.”
