St. Petersburg Times' Sunday circulation gains No. 2 among major U.S. metro newspapers

The St. Petersburg Times stood out as one of the country's top-performing major metropolitan newspapers in figures released Tuesday by the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

The Times posted the second-biggest circulation gain in Sunday distribution among the country's 25 largest newspapers in the six-month period that ended Sept. 30. The 6.6 percent increase was second only to the Orange County Register, based in Santa Ana, Calif.

Daily circulation at the Times fell 1.4 percent. Only one major paper performed better, the Portland Oregonian, which gained less than 1 percent.

The Times ranked as 16th-largest paper in Sunday circulation and 23rd-largest in daily circulation, the only Florida newspaper in the top 25 for either category.
