Fox News Digital dominated both the month of June and the second quarter of 2023 to finish as the No. 1 news organization in key categories, according to Comscore.
Americans flocked to Fox News Digital for the latest news and analysis during the news-heavy month of June to help it top all competitors in both multiplatform minutes and multiplatform views. Fox News Digital dominated multiplatform minutes, finishing with 3.1 billion to finish No. 1 among digital outlets including CNN, The New York Times, CBS News, The Washington Post, NBC News, Insider, USA Today and ABC News.
No other news site surpassed the two-billion minute benchmark as Fox New Digital was up 8% compared to the prior year and runner-up CNN shed 15% from last year. Fox New Digital has now surpassed 3 billion viewers for three straight months.
Entertainment stories included country music star John Rich weighing in on fellow musician Garth Brooks’ decision to serve “every brand of beer” at his upcoming Nashville, Tenn., spot as Bud Light continued to face backlash, and Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy saying he believes that Prince Harry is “suffering” following his royal exit.
