Metro plans to cover 90% of France
Under the new ownership of commercial TV-channel TF1, Metro France plans to expand distribution in 2012 from 30 to 60 cities.
According to director Edouard Boccon-Gibod, this means that coverage in France wil rise from 68 to 90% of the country.
Circulation, however, will stay the same as the distribution in the existing markets will be lowered. (Ozap)
Metro is now distributed in 9 different daily editions with a total circulation of 770,000 copies. After 20 Minutes and DirectPlus it is the third free daily in the country.
