    The Most widely read weekly paper in Masvingo
    Makes inroads in the Midlands Province
    Zim's best paper for local news (92%)


    HARARE – The Mirror continues to climb up the ladder in media readership surveys conducted by the Zimbabwe All Media Products Survey (ZAMPS) with the report for the first six months of the year released last week showing that the paper is by far the country's most preferred in terms of local news.
    The Mirror which emerged into the national league of newspapers in 2017 has grown stronger with statistics showing that it has since gained into the Midlands market with a 1% share compared to well established newspapers like Sunday News that has 1%, Umthunywa that has no rating, Daily News on Sunday that has no rating and The Standard that has 4%.
    Mirror consultant, Matthew Takaona welcomed the results and attributed them to a dedicated and focussed team. He expressed the optimism that the market share will even be bigger in the second half of 2018.
    The Mirror has also phenomenally increased its market share in Masvingo where it is by far the most widely read newspaper in the province. Its market share in the province has jumped to 14% closing the gap on the leader to just 1%. The leader is the Sunday Mail with a 15% rating in the province.
    The Mirror's regional weekly competitor in Msvingo Province, The Sunday News and Manica Post have a market rating of 1% each. The Mirror fares far better than all well established national weeklies like The Standard which has 2% rating in Masvingo, Daily News on Sunday no rating in Masvingo, Financial Gazette 2% in Masvingo, Zim Independent 1% and B Metro 1%.
    The Mirror also consolidated its position as the best paper for local news with a rating of 92%. Its closest rival is The Zimbabwe Independent which is rated at 56%, Fingaz 42% and Sunday Mail 35%. Many people interviewed during the survey said they cannot miss The Mirror because of its rich local content.
