Dempa Shimbun Daily(電波新聞)has been the flagship publication of Dempa Publications since it was introduced in the early 1950s. Circulated largely in Japan, the 24-page, full-sized business-to-business daily newspaper is being printed simultaneously in Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka, and is delivered every morning to subscribers throughout Japan.
With more or less 300,000 subscribers and pass-around rate of 5.2 readers per issue, Dempa Shimbun covers broad range of fields, ranging from domestic and foreign, political and economic news, to electronics stores and even their management problems and sales. Other articles highlight domestic and foreign political and economic affairs, as well as domestic and foreign trends in the electronics industry.
The news-gathering network of Dempa Shimbun comes from its headquarters in Tokyo as well as its domestic and overseas branches. In addition, the newspaper sends special correspondents to gather news throughout the world, making its broad-based news-gathering approach unparalleled among other trade newspapers.
Because of its extensive coverage, Dempa Shimbun commands a broad readership, from electronics makers to dealers. Subscribers continue to prop up in growing number, now including the industries of iron and steel, chemicals, and among others. Thus, Dempa Shimbun continues to evolve into an industrial newspaper centering on electronics, rather than a one-theme trade paper serving a single industry.
Electronics has spurred the development of an information-oriented society, a trend that continues to accelerate with the fast-paced development of cutting-edge technologies. Dempa Shimbun's commitment to cultivate a role as a business newspaper in the industry lives on.
