Geographic Reach

The company's newspapers cover world news but are distributed mainly in the US and UK.

Sales and Marketing

USA TODAY is especially popular with business travelers and other Americans staying in hotels. Its marketing and advertising are geared towards business people.


Gannett is focused on local news that could be of national interest. USA TODAY has a truly national following, and it is considered one of the few national newspapers. However, the paper is not as highly regarded as the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal .
