TORONTO—The Newspaper Audience Databank (NADbank) has released its midyear study, showing eight in 10 adults in urban areas read newspapers every week — and print versions are still dominating.

“The results of this study confirm that daily newspapers continue to be a vital source of news, information and entertainment for consumers,” noted Anne Crassweller, president of NADbank. “Readers migrate between print and web editions of newspapers on a daily basis, however printed editions continue to be the most popular way to read a newspaper.”
