That’s one of the findings in a new Harris Poll of about 3,000 U.S. adults.
While broadcast television news appears to be the most popular medium sought, many adults also get their news several times a week or daily by going online to get news (64%), reading a local daily newspaper (63%), listening to radio news broadcasts (54%), listening to talk radio stations (37%), listening to satellite news programming (19%), and reading a national newspaper (18%).
I live in closed little online world so I have no basis for doubting these numbers. But 63% of adults read the daily newspaper? Take a look at these numbers and tell me if they seem accurate based on your first-hand experience.
Update: Table on Media Usage from Radio Business Report. The most disturbing stat? Radio news tied with online in the 59+ group. Shudder.
