Page 1 of 11

What are the largest newspapers in America? There’s about a one-in-three chance that you’re reading this over a morning cup of Joe, perhaps with a newspaper by your side. Okay, we made that probability up, but the point is this: although the print media industry is in secular decline, there are still plenty of massive publications out there, and it’s worth it to make yourself aware of the biggest players. With over 300 million people in the US alone, newspapers have major market potential; one of the biggest companies in this space is News Corp (NASDAQ:NWSA), which owns several major publications.

With millions of papers sold daily, print media sources have a large influence on public opinion, but any source must earn readers’ trust to maintain a solid base, and to build profits. And even though there are hundreds of titles, only a select few manage to earn the public’s appreciation.
