New Pew research study highlights the power of local news in the digital age

 New research from Pew Research Center demonstrates that there is a pervasive interest in local news across North America. The Local News in the Digital Age study reveals that nearly nine in ten residents in the three diverse cities across the U.S. (Denver, Macon and Sioux) follow news about their local area very or somewhat closely, and roughly half follow it very closely.

The 159-page report offers an in-depth look at local news consumption in the three divergent US cities and probes residents about their news habits, civic engagement and attitudes about the city and the media that serve it.
