The Reach network welcomed a record 43m visitors last month

New figures show that in times of uncertainty people turn to the most trusted media

Reach websites were visited by a record-breaking 43m people in August, according to the latest results published by media analytics company Comscore.

The figure is an all-time high for the network and puts Reach ahead of the BBC, News UK, the Daily Mail and Sky in terms of online audience, and behind only US giants like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon.

It confirm that Reach is the country’s largest news media publisher, reaching an incredible 84% of the UK’s total digital population. The audience share on mobile devices is higher still, with 93% of all smartphone and tablet users visiting our network.
