The percentage of daily print newspaper readers in the U.S. has
fallen nearly 20% since 2001, according to research firm Scarborough.
But that drop has not been spread evenly, with print readership
remaining strong in some metropolitan areas.
In several cities rimming the Great Lakes and Northeast, the
percentage of adults who claim to read a print newspaper daily hovered
around 50% in 2012, compared with 35.7% nationwide, Scarborough found.
