Local TV newscasts are in trouble as audiences disappear

Fewer people are watching the local news, according to numbers from Pew. In fact, the three most important time slots—morning, early evening, and late night—for NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox local affiliate channels have all seen a steady decline since 2007. Late-night newscasts have been hit the hardest, dropping 31%. Meanwhile, early evening news dropped 19% and morning 12%.

It's tough times out there for old media news consumption, I guess. You can read the full Pew report here http://www.journalism.org/fact-sheet/local-tv-news/ CGW
