THE Evening Times in Glasgow has been the biggest loser in the regional ABC results after the six monthly average from January to June were published.
It was the only one of the Scottish regional dailies to suffer a double digit drop on the preceding year – 12 per cent – trailing a way behind market leader the Press and Journal in Aberdeen.
The P&J's sister titles, the Evening Express, had the smallest drop in sales at just 2.5 per cent in what was a decent showing for the stable.
Somewhat depressingly, none of the papers were able to record a rise in circulation.
