This week's information from the Audit Bureau of Circulations was rough news for most of the Northeast Tennessee Newspapers.

The general health of newspaper circulation in the region followed what you've been reading about on the national level, but not as bad in some cases. For instance, The Morristown Citizen-Tribune posted a 938 increase in daily circulation and a 642 increase for its Sunday paper. It was the only bright spot in the updates for Sept. 08 - Sept. '07 The Bristol Herald-Courier suffered the biggest bite with a 3,720 daily circulation loss and a 3,618 Sunday circulation loss. The Kingsport Times-News lost 629 daily subscribers and 1,286 Sunday subscribers. Over in Johnson City the Press lost 772 daily subscribers and 1,185 Sunday subscriptions. The Greeneville Sun posted a daily circulation loss of 171 and a Sunday loss of 221. The regions' metro papers also showed circulation losses. The Knoxville News-Sentinel dropped 2,779 subscribers and 7,025 Sunday subscriptions. The Roanoke Times lost 798 daily subscriptions and 2,295 Sunday subscriptions. Here's how the Sept. '08 to Sept. '07 Monday - Friday totals look. Knoxville News-Sentinel 112,132 Roanoke Times - 87,463 Kingsport Times-News - 42,028 Bristol Herald-Courier - 33,651 Johnson City Press - 28,614 Morristown Citizen-Tribune - 18,589 Greenville Sun - 13,851
