Rarely does it happen in any market that the lead of the top publication over the next, is as high as 96%.
This is true for Vijay Karnataka



Now, what's even more unusual is the fact that Vijay Karnataka delivers
larger audiences than the next three Kannada newspaper put together.




This phenomenon gets underlined in the IRS 2003-R1, wherein the combined reach of the
next four publications falls short of the reach of Vijay Karnataka!
