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
