New study finds online news audiences growing during recession

With all the hardship facing newspapers, some good news comes from the Center for the Digital Future.  It found more people are reading news online and spending more time doing it.

Online users are spending 53 minutes per week reading online newspapers, as compared to last year when the study found people were doing this only 41 minutes per week.

The centre is part of the USC Annenberg’s School of Journalism.
