Belgium newspapers lose circulation in 2012

Flemish (Dutch language) newspapers in Belgium performed – until 2012 – better than the French language Wallone papers.

In 2012, however, almost all Flemish newspapers lost circulation as well.

Compared to 2011 economic paper De Tijd lost 9%, De Morgen and Gazet van Antwerpen both lost 4% while the Dutch language version of free daily Metro lost 3%. Regional paper Het Belang van Limburg lost 2%. Tabloid paper Het Laatste Nieuws had the same circulation as in 2011. De 2012 circulation of De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad is not yet officially published.
