Do You Follow the Local News? [POLL]

When you think about “the news” do you think of war, national unemployment figures and President Obama? Because in local news, there’s so much more, ranging from crime to weather to the latest on the school board.

In fact, according to a Pew Research Center study of 2,251 adults, 72 percent follow the local news closely most of the time. Twenty-five percent only follow the local news when something important is happening around their town, and three percent didn’t answer the question.

In what should be music to the ailing newspaper industry’s ears, the survey also found that most people still get their local news from their local paper.
