ROP Advertising loosing ground to Preprints (FSI’s)

Some large retailers, including Publix, are increasing their FSI (preprint) advertising and diminishing their ROP advertising (see chart below).

This has been detrimental to smaller newspaper and magazine publishers as large newspapers, many of them part of newspaper chains with national footprints (e.g. Impremedia, McClatchy etc) have been able to attract a larger portion of the FSI business coming from retailers.
