City & regional magazines rely on print advertising – in the US that is

FolioAccording to the FOLIO:’s annual survey of city and regional magazine publishers in the US, print may be dying, but it’s still lively enough to carry the city and regional magazine industry. Local titles rely on print for as much as 93% of their annual revenue. Companies aren’t shying away from it either; more print products are scheduled to launch in 2014 than at any point in the last 5 years. Along with the rest of the publishing industry, print peaked in the mid-2000s for city and regional magazines, notes the report. It accounted for up to 95.9% of overall revenue in 2005, but it hasn’t dipped far from that point.
