For those who like it straight up, sans the marketing and the hype, here’s the latest (June) internet rankings according to Hitwise for most visited news media companies in Las Vegas. The lower the ranking, the more traffic on the website. The winner (again):
No. 1 — Las Vegas Review-Journal (163rd largest news and media website in America).
No. 2 — Las Vegas Sun (956).
No. 3 — KLAS-TV (1,322).
No. 4 — FOX5-TV (1,538).
No. 5 — KVBC-TV (1,566).
No. 6 — KTNV-TV (2,509).
June saw the Review-Journal (Las Vegas’ favorite newspaper) improve 39 spots over May (202nd to 163rd). The Sun went the wrong way dropping 113 positions (843rd in May to 956th in June) and the others treaded water in the same relative positions. If you want to window out remove television stations and just look at print media websites, the R-J is the 76th most visited website and the Sun is … 498th. Them’s the facts.
