    The Economic Times is number 4 among English newspapers: IRS 2017

    Using a different yardstick called Total Readership (TR), ET again tops the financial daily category with a readership of 2.8 million.
    MUMBAI: India’s leading financial daily , The Economic Times (ET), occupies fourth position among English language newspapers as per the latest Indian Readership Survey (IRS) report. ET occupies the fourth place — using two different metrics of readership — behind The Times of India, Hindustan Times and The Hindu. It is the only financial newspaper to figure in the top ten.

    It is also way ahead of its competitors in the financial news space. In terms of average issue readership (AIR), ET towers over competition with an AIR of 882,000, followed by Mint (239,000), Hindu Business Line (148,000) and Business Standard (107,000). AIR is a widely used measure for a newspaper’s readership. Using the AIR yardstick, ET’s readership is 78% more than the combined figure of the other three papers.

    Using a different yardstick called Total Readership (TR), ET again tops the financial daily category with a readership of 2.8 million.

    At second, third and fourth places are Hindu Business Line (775,000), Business Standard (505,000) and Mint (453,000), respectively. In a clear sign of ET’s dominance, the survey clearly shows that its total readership is about 66% higher than the three next financial dailies put together.

    Total readership is the number of readers who have read the newspaper at least once in the last one month. The survey was conducted across urban and rural India for people over the age of 12 years. The results were released last Thursday. Besides reporting on companies and markets, ET has stepped up coverage of new economy companies, politics and sports in the last few years.

    Sam Balsara, CMD at Madison World, said that ET has done a marvellous job in becoming a holistic paper from just a financial daily. “ET attracts a lot of readers who read only one paper as they feel all their requirements are being met. The brand name is extremely strong in financial journalism and I feel in coming years, ET should launch in regional languages,” Balsara said.

    Changes in Methodology

    Shashi Sinha, CEO, IPG Mediabrands India, said, “In no other media genre, we see a dominance like The Economic Times has in English business news space. Its impact is unmatched.”

    The IRS 2017 data was released by the Readership Studies Council of India (RSCI) and Media Research Users Council (MRUC) after a gap of three years with multiple changes in the methodology and much tighter scrutiny process.

    While ET is the only financial daily in the top five, three publications of Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd. (BCCL), commonly known as The Times Group, were among the top 5 English dailies in the country.

    The Times of India (ToI) is by far the leader of the pack with a total readership of over 13 million, while Mumbai Mirror is fifth largest with 1.8 million.

    ToI’s AIR is at 4.76 million for the main edition while in comparison, Hindustan Times and The Hindu, the second and third-largest read English dailies had a combined AIR of 4.23 million for their main editions.
