The 2023 Local Newspaper Study, conducted by independent research group Coda for America’s Newspapers, continues to point to local newspapers and their websites as the most relied upon source for information about public notices and government.

There are many different ways to read the local newspaper. Sixty-three percent of readers access local news through both print and digital newspaper platforms.

8 out of 10 Americans read print or digitally accessed newspaper content every month, the report shows.

The consumer habits and preferences of reader groups are impressive, too. More than 90 percent of readers in the study planned to shop for or buy an automobile, jewelry, sporting goods, home improvement products and appliances.

We are proud of our long history of local journalism and community leadership, and honored to serve as a connection to local businesses and service providers for more than 130 years.
