From tomorrow the Bel Tel is going down the compact road – well continuing down the compact road. They currently have a compact edition for their early morning print run, which then reverts back to a broadsheet for the later editions.
The compact then takes over for the Saturday edition in total. Within the early morning edition of 18,333 compact copies, 6,380 are ‘free copy pickup’. The Monday to Friday broadsheet does 51,200 on top of that. The Saturday currently edition does 56,300. (all ABC Jun Dec 2008)
