In the past 15 years, newspapers have watched readers gradually (and then rapidly) shift their news consumption from the printed word to the digital one. What started as nearly imperceptible readership losses rapidly snowballed as the world realized it could get fresher content free online. Now, it looks as though radio and possibly TV are also losing their audiences to the Internet.

Pew Research Center Suggests Online News Gaining Readers At A Fast Clip

A new study from the Pew Research Center finds that the number of people getting news with computers and mobile devices is rocketing, while news audience numbers for newspapers and radio are sliding. Where only 24% of respondents got their news online in 2002, a whopping 39% report doing so now. Newspaper and radio users have dropped from about 39% to 29% (newspaper) and 33% (radio) in that same period. TV is also dipping, though its viewership is still king with 55% in 2012. The Pew Research Center characterizes TV as “Increasingly vulnerable,” and points to research that shows TV news viewership dropping precipitously in the 18-29 year-old range.

Get up-to-the minute news, tuned to your interests, with text, video, and audio meshed to make an engaging experience on any device you own? Can’t imagine why online news is so popular.

I read online news most of the time.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I listen to the radio and visit many websites daily in a (vain) attempt to keep up. To my mind, this combination is far more effective than reading print journals and watching TV, neither of which I do any longer Of course, we have to sift the information we find on the web, but that obtains equally for print newspapers and, in particular, TV....
