The World: Sydney - Men's magazines lose ground as circulations plummet

The Australian men's magazine market has experienced one of the worst declines in circulation that the sector has ever seen.

FHM, published by ACP, lost 28.4 per cent of its circulation compared with the same time last year, while Ralph, another ACP publication, was down by 26.5 per cent. News Magazine's Alpha saw a 15.9 per cent drop in circulation.

The weekly women's and celebrity markets were also hit, with Woman's Day, NW and OK! all recording dips in figures.
