This is good news for most local publications.  I read these local media publications  avidly  :
I was happy to see the latest research from Pew Internet Research on the topic of local news
 
  • Nearly three quarters (72%) of adults said  local newspapers are by far the source they rely on for much of the local information they need
  • One-third of local news enthusiasts (32%) say it would have a major impact on them if their local newspaper no longer existed
  • Local news consumers are more connected to their communities than others
  • Local news enthusiasts use the internet, cell phones, social networking sites and other technology about as much as those who follow local news less closely

Are you a local news enthusiast? Maybe we should have our own Facebook Group. What do you think? Read the rest of the report and more details at http://pewinternet.org/Reports/2012/Local-news-enthusiasts/Summary-of-Findings.aspx
