Newspapers see 4.6 percent circulation drop

Newspapers are seeing a sharper drop in circulation.
The Audit Bureau of Circulations says average daily circulation is down 4.6 percent in the April-September period, compared with last year.
Last year's drop was only 2.6 percent among the papers reporting comparable circulation totals.
The circulation bureau is making the reports public Monday.
Declines are expected given the ongoing migration of readers to the Internet. Despite the drops, newspapers are more worried about even steeper reductions in advertising revenue because of the weak economy.
The nation's top two papers, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal, report flat circulation, while The New York Times says circulation declined 3.6 percent.
