Blesk still most popular Czech daily but readership falling


Blesk remains the Czech Republic’s most read newspaper, with 834,000 readers per issue in the second half of last year, according to the Union of Publishers. That figure was almost 40,000 down on the first half of 2019.

The second most popular daily is Mladá fronta Dnes, with 513,000 readers an issue. Third is Právo, with 215,000.

While the reach of sold newspapers declined in the third and fourth quarters, the free dailies Metro and E15 both registered a slight rise in readership.
