announced Wednesday, May 5, a slower growth in its number of subscribers in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 2020. The CEO of the group, Meredith Kopit Levien announces that the title counts

Over the first three months of 2021, the title's turnover reached $ 473 million, an increase of 6.6% over the period.

This growth comes primarily from subscription revenues, which bring in 329.1 million to the newspaper, or 69.5% of their revenues.

Advertising revenues continue to decline.

They reached $ 97.1 million, a decrease of 8.5%.

In retail, digital advertising grew by 16.3%, while print advertising collapsed and lost 31.6%.

New York Times

We have to go back to the third quarter of 2019, and its 273,000 new customers, to find an increase as low as the first months of 2021.

“In February and March, our audiences fell compared to their historic highs last year, and we saw fewer net additions of subscriptions in the latter part of the quarter, ”

said Meredith Kopit Levien in a press release.

The company remains optimistic, however, and is no exception to its goal of 10 million subscribers by 2025.

Last year US media audiences were boosted by the pandemic and the US election. Since the departure of Donald Trump, whose regular press releases enthralled readers, the headlines must find another way to keep Americans' attention.
