UK National Newspaper Combined Print/Web Readership

The numbers, drawn from the results of the National Readership survey and reported in Press Gazette, show that nearly 14 million people per week are now reading the Mail titles either in print or online. The real number will be even higher as the figure does not include traffic from mobile devices.

The Sun remains the most read paper in print by a distance.

    I’d have thought the most interesting figures there are the very low web reader totals for the titles that have paywalls online. Are they worth it for such a big hit to online readers? I’d think Times would have a good chance of coming out as top broadsheet on total numbers if they didn’t charge. And such feeble numbers must cause a real problem selling digital advertising.

    Presumably Guido can’t comment since he’s tied into the Sun now himself…

      I am surprised that The Sun has over half-a-million readers prepared to pay £7+ a month for the Sun+ subscription. That’s over £40 million a year that the Gruntiad or the Mail are not getting.

      6000m x £0 = £0
      500m x £7 = £3500m

      so it depends on the web advertising – and a large majority have Adblock activated

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
