Ruth Holladay: Star's Daily Circulation Plunges Below 100,000
Former Indianapolis Star columnist Ruth Holladay has a stunning circulation figure for the Gannett-owned newspaper over at her blog. According to Holladay's source, the Star's daily circulation figure has plunged to just 97,000. "We used to run 200,000 daily, 400,000 Sunday," Holladay writes. "Those days are long gone," she adds. It probably doesn't help that the newspaper has abandoned hard news coverage and good old fashion investigative journalism in favor of sports and entertainment and a bunch of fluff with an insert from the USA Today tossed in to fill up a daily newspaper that is a fraction of what it once was.
