Study: Journalism Grads Don't Read Newspapers, Mags, Books
Posted: 8/16/2013 | By: Paul Bedard | Washington Examiner
This could be the final blow to paper and ink news: Reporters
graduating out of journalism school and headed to work at newspapers and
magazines don't read print media, with over seven of 10 choosing
digital news and social media websites instead, the highest number ever,
according to an authoritative new study.
The University of Georgia's "Annual Survey of Journalism & Mass Communication Graduates,"
which surveys J-School grads, their habits, salaries and the jobs they
take, found that just one-third had read a newspaper the day before
taking the survey.
