Bucking industry trend, GCI’s online revenue rises

Across the newspaper industry, The New York Times says in a new story, online revenue fell 2.4% in the second quarter from a year before — a period when Gannett’s digital revenue rose 5%, according to the company’s most recent quarterly filing.

The paper says the industry-wide decline was the only year-over-year drop since the Newspaper Association of America trade group began measuring online revenue in 2003. And the fall came even as overall online advertising grows. “Display advertising, the graphics-rich ads that newspaper sites carry, grew 7.6% in the second quarter,” the NYT says, citing TNS Media Intelligence data.

(Something I just discovered, as a result of trolling through GCI’s second-quarter filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission: Gannett has resumed reporting online revenue trends after omitting them at one point.)
