National and regional newspapers posted gains of 8.1 percent and 6.3 percent to $885.8 million and $1.43 billion, respectively.


Consumer magazines saw a rise of 5.6 percent to $376.9 million compared with the same quarter a year earlier. Business magazines increased 2.1 percent from Q2 2003 to $481.5 million.
