Spot.us Publishes Results of Its ‘Media Survey’ of Los Angeles

A couple of months ago, over the course of several weeks, Spot.us undertook a comprehensive survey of the Los Angeles media scene. Asking questions like, “Forgetting celebrity gossip, name something unique reporters in L.A. should focus on…” the non-profit journalistic upstart queried its readers about what kind of coverage this city is lacking, and what forms of media they’d like to see stories presented in.

After more than 500 respondents took part, the results are finally in and published on Spot.us’ site. The survey is pretty lengthy, worth taking a look at in full, but here’s what Spot.us readers came up with in answer to the aforementioned question of what they’d like to see covered.

The most common responses included transportation issues, air- and water-quality issues and the cultural, racial and ethnic diversity in the L.A. area. A noticeable contingency expressed interest in seeing stories about the city’s grassroots arts cultures and ethnic enclaves, and several mentioned being tired of celebrity coverage and wanting to see coverage of “regular” people. There were also a fair amount of responses about education and homelessness in L.A.

Again, worth checking out the study in full.
