How Do Canadians Learn About the News?…

…according a poll of 1,000 participants by Ipsos Reid, it’s internet UP and TV DOWN.

The study, Online News and Information Seeking: What the Future Holds, suggests internet use among Canadians is up about 46 per cent to 12.7 hours a week from 8.7 hours in 2002. That increase comes while radio listening has dropped an average of five hours to 11 hours per week.

Television still remained at the top of the list of most-used media sources, according to the poll, with Canadians watching an average of 14.3 hours of TV per week. But younger internet users spent 14.7 hours online a week, about three hours more than they did on radio and television. Teens spent only 2.5 hours a week reading newspapers. Story from CBC .
