The New Age, the pro-government newspaper owned by the Gupta family scored some R125 million in advertising in 2012, almost R75 million of it from government, parastatal or government-linked organisations. Not too bad for a brand-new newspaper that in 2012 didn’t even have certified circulation figures. It is likely The New Age will at least repeat this success in 2013, despite eschewing the print media industry’s gold standard for circulation measurement. By MANDY DE WAAL.
