But, according to the same story, The Dallas Morning News has surpassed the national average, with the daily edition showing at least a 5 percent decline -- joining the likes of The Miami Herald, The San Diego Union-Tribune, The Austin American-Statesmen and a handful of other moderate- to large-sized papers. This decline in circulation will likely be addressed tomorrow, when Belo Corp. releases its first quarter earnings and "other matters of interest to shareholders and analysts" at 7:30 a.m. --Robert Wilonsky
