47. Thanks for pointing this out
According to, the top 100 newspapers in America by circulation have 41 different owners. Those with the most holdings are Gannett (12 of the 100), McClatchy (10), Newhouse (9), Tribune Publishing (9), MediaNews (7) and Hearst (5).

Gannett owns 128 daily and non-daily newspapers in the U.S. McClatchy, since its purchase of Knight-Ridder in 2006, is second with 32 dailies and 50 non-dailies (which, incidentally, are usually regarded as the best in the business).

There are approximately 1,400 daily newspapers in the U.S.
