MRUC and Hansa Research have released the IRS 2010 Q1 results. From this year, IRS has moved to quarterly reporting.
The IRS report will be released quarterly on moving annual total (i.e annual sample). Hansa expects this to help publishers assess the performance of their new publication / edition launches three to six months early as compared to six monthly reporting.
There are no big surprises in the top three pecking order in the top three for English dailies, Hindi dailies and regional dailies. Times of India, Dainik Jagran and Lokmat continue to lead the pack.
