Total North American newsprint demand posted a 4.4% reduction in December, according to the Pulp and Paper Products Council. Demand from the region's largest users of newsprint -- US daily newspapers - was down 4.0%, while demand by other end users fell 5.7%.
Total demand for the full year declined only 1.2%, as the dailies' 5.8% demand drop in 2012 was largely offset by a 20.4% increase in demand from other end users.
