It’s a time to boast. The Audit Bureau of Circulations has released its latest circulation figures, and the Reader‘s new big brother, the Sun-Times, tops metropolitan Chicago with a Monday-Friday circulation average of 432,455. That’s 11.07 percent growth over the last year. And it tops the Tribune‘s daily circulation of 411,960—down 3.2 percent.

At the Reader, we’re doing more than cheering the Sun-Times on. We’re contributing. As a “branded edition” of the Sun-Times since Sun-Times Media bought us in June, our circulation over the past 16 weeks counts too. The total Sun-Times Monday-Friday circulation includes the weekly circulation of the Reader divided by five.
