Printed community newspaper readers love local news

The printed community newspaper is by far the favourite source of local news and information in communities large and small across Canada.

Time spent with a community newspaper is virtually unchanged compared to two years ago. Not surprisingly, the predominant reason for reading printed community newspapers is for local information, including news, editorial, sports, entertainment and events.

Recent research finds that printed community newspaper readers are engaged; they are more likely to closely follow all types of news, particularly local news, most of the time.
