New Orleans Study: Without Newspaper Residents Choose TV

It looks like local TV News will be the big winner when the New Orleans Times-Picayune reduces its daily run to three days a week.

According to a study conducted by the Louisiana State University Public Policy Research Lab, when local residents were asked where they’d get their news fix when there’s no newspaper available, 76 percent chose local TV.

Only 40 percent stuck with the paper as their main source according to the study — our math isn’t bad — the survey allowed multiple responses.

Television clearly outdistanced any other medium as 44 percent of those polled chose TV as their main source of local news and nearly 40 percent choosing national broadcast networks for national and global news.
