The IRS Q3 2010 results have brought cheer to periodicals, which had come under heavy fire following the Q2 results. English periodicals appear to have done better than expected in several, including Delhi.

Weeklies

Outlook is the No. 2 among the weeklies. The magazine, too, has seen a drop in AIR – from 86,000 in Q2 to 72,000 in this quarter, a decline of 16.28 per cent.

Monthlies
Readers Digest remains the top monthly magazine despite recording a negative growth in AIR of 16.17 per cent – from 167,000 in Q2 to 140,000 in Q3. It is followed by Competition Success Review, Auto Car, Stardust and General Knowledge Today. Auto Car has recorded the steepest climb in AIR of 24 per cent at 62,000 from 50,000 in Q2.

Fortnightlies
Femina leads the fortnightly magazine segment with a positive growth in readership of 13.25 per cent. The magazine has recorded an AIR of 94,000 in Q3, as against 83,000 in Q2. Champak is at No. 2 and has seen a positive growth in AIR of 8.70 per cent – from 46,000 in Q2 to 50,000 in this quarter.
