NEW YORK - The Newspaper Association of America reports overall advertising revenues rose 1.8% during the first quarter of the year.
Most of the overall growth came from online ads, which jumped 34.9% to $613.3 million (€473m; £325.2m) in Q1 compared with the same period a year ago. However, that represents a slower pace than the 39.7% growth recorded in the year-ago period.
Print-only advertising edged up 0.3% to $10.5 billion, which the NAA said was led by gains in real estate advertising.
