One way the journalism industry is structured is by the different media that carry news. The Newspaper Association of America reports that there were 1,382 daily newspapers in 2011, with circulation of 44.4 million copies, plus 900 Sunday papers, with circulation of 48.5 million. Newspaper-owned Web sites, not counting mobile applications, received about 24 million visits per day. The estimated readership of the newspapers on any given day, including their Web sites and electronic editions, was 98.6 million adults, of whom well over half were 55 years of age or older.
