Tele takes a hiding

 Not good circulation news at any of the local dailies last year but the Belfast Telegraph’s drop is the most dramatic of all:

Circulation figures for Northern Ireland newspapers for the period July to December 2010 as published by the Audit Bureau of Circulation today, together with the change year-on-year from the same period in 2009.

Belfast Telegraph 58,491 -11.7pc
Irish News – Morning 44,222 -3.2pc
Sunday Journal 2,598 -0.7pc
Sunday Life 54,435 -9.4pc
Ulster – News Letter 23,669 -3.6pc

The regional weeklies, with the exception of one or two of the community papers, all reflect the same trend.
