The Financial Times sells just under 200,000 copies a day. The Sun sells 1.5 million and The Daily Mail sells 1.3 million.

All newspapers are declining in popularity as online news sites increase their audiences. Eight years ago, the FT's circulation was double what it is now, as were those of the Daily Mail and The Sun.

My station of choice 5Live spent all of yesterday and a lot of today going over it.

Yes it's a sport/news station, but it was totally OTT for me.
