Local TV News and the New Media Landscape

"Local television news would seem to be in an enviable position. The average local TV station now has more news employees than the average American newspaper, profits are strong and local TV news remains the dominant news source for Americans.

At the same time, the future of television is replete with challenges."

This Knight Foundation Study focuses on the future of local TV news. https://www.knightfoundation.o...
