Free daily circulation jumps by 2 million

Professor Piet Bakker, in his Free Daily Newspapers newsletter, notes that that combined circulation of free dailies worldwide has grown from 25 million to 27 million in two months. He says that's due mostly to new free dailies in Europe, where circulation is almost 19 million. His newsletter has a breakdown of circulation and titles. He doesn't mention much about what's happened here in the United States and Canada, where free dailies have launched in Santa Barbara, Calif.; Manchester, N.H.; Smithers, B.C., Canada; Marco Island, Fla. and San Francisco. Maybe it's time we, at, put together our own list of free dailies in the United States?
