New York—Both the New York Times Co. and Dow Jones & Co. reported increased advertising revenue for November.
New York Times Co. ad revenue increased 4.4% compared with November 2003, and overall company revenue increased 3.6% in the same time frame. Ad revenues for the New York Times Media Group increased 6.2%. The results were affected by timing differences in special sections, which helped November’s performance but hurt October’s.

At Dow Jones, advertising linage in The Wall Street Journal’s U.S. edition increased 10.2% in November, compared with a year earlier. On a per-issue basis, advertising was down 0.3% because there were two more publishing days in November of this year than in November 2003.
At Dow Jones’ Barron’s, total national advertising pages increased 45% in November, although only 16% on a per-issue basis.
