29% of publishers citied rises in excess of 25% year-on-year in Q1 2020, up from 24% that reported this level of growth in the previous quarter

Digital publishing revenues fell less than expected to £117.1m in Q1 2020, a 2.3% decline against Q1 2019, according to the latest quarterly Digital Publishers Revenue Index (DPRI) from the Association of Online Publishers (AOP) and Deloitte.
