At a time when it is generally assumed that newspaper readership is declining this article makes an interesting read. It suggests that 12,681,472 people still buy a newspaper every day. The figures come from ABC figures and show that the 10 London based national titles sell an average of 9,540,993 a day. The 68 English regional dailies (mornings and evenings) together sell 2,085,116. In addition the non paid for dailies sell 1.344,959 (Metro) 700,000 (Evening Standard) and 113,321 (City AM) making newspaper readership nearer the 15m mark. Personally I don’t buy a printed newspaper anymore but I do still read those that are still freely available online.
