What 7 in 10 LNP Readers Revealed in Our Last Survey


Reading Habits can be Personal

It’s probably not surprising to learn that the people at LNP Media Group are obsessed with measuring and analyzing reader habits. We do a lot of research and big studies. We ask a lot of questions to find out what people care about, and try to measure how much they care about it. But readers are not always forthcoming. Sometimes they don’t get specific, or don’t want to share too much about what they read, or why. Despite all the research we do, we’re not always 100% sure about our readers feelings about every part of our news and information offers. Over the years, we’ve come to accept that people don’t always want to share every part of their reading habits. Some parts of our subscribers’ lives are personal. We get it.

We Never Expected Rave Reviews

Maybe that’s why we were surprised when we started getting positive feedback. Sometimes it was a short note. Other times it was a legitimate, handwritten letter. (Yes, they still exist!) And we started getting emails, and Facebook posts and comments. We got lots of positive comments in surveys. In fact, everywhere we look, people were making an effort to tell us how much they like our new magazine. There’s no other way to describe it. Sunday magazine got rave reviews.

 7 in 10 Readers read Sunday EVERY WEEK

Our last survey cinched it. 7 out of 10 people who subscribe to LNP on Sundays reported that they read Sunday magazine every week. That translates to loyal weekly readership in over 50,000 homes, with a readership of almost 140,000.

While it surprises some, Sunday magazine is not available in newsstand editions. None of its content is available online. It doesn’t have a Facebook or Twitter account. Instead, it’s a rock-solid expression of our commitment to print and to those who love it. We’re grateful that our readers love our magazine. And we’re excited to have such a beloved magazine to offer to our local advertisers.

 

Haikus, Birdwatching, Local Makers and More

Whether you love nature, culture, food, history or the arts, Sunday offers readers original, local content every week. The Sunday staff looks for the very best of everything local. That’s why you’ll find work from local poets and writers, profiles on businesses, chefs, craftsmen and historians, glimpses back into Lancaster County history, recipes, profiles on artists and musicians and, of course, our now famous Lancaster County-inspired word searches.
