Last March, we shared a list created by Real Clear Politics that looked at 9 newspapers that were experiencing a flurry of hardships- from declining circulation rates and bankruptcy protection to substantial newsroom cuts and the decision to abandon the print medium altogether.

Here’s a look at how they’re doing several months later (numbers from The Audit Bureau Of Circulation 6.6.09 report):

  • New York Daily News – Circulation March 2009: 632,595 / June 2009: 602,857     (-29,738)
  • Chicago Sun-Times– March 2009: 313,176 /  June 2009: 312,141 (-1,035) (NOTE:On 3.31.09, The Sun-Times filed for bankruptcy protection)
  • Detroit News – March 2009: 178,280 /  June 2009: 169,748 (-8,532)
  • Miami Herald– March 2009: 210,884 /  June 2009: 202,112 (-8,772)
  • Philadelphia Daily News – March 2009: 97,694/  June 2009: 99,103 (+1,409) (The Daily News filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this year, and merged with The Philadelphia Inquirer)
