Also of note from the Pew Research study “How People Learn About Their Local Community:”

Nearly half of adults — 47 percent — get some local news and information on mobile devices. 
Neither social media nor mobile apps yet rate as a leading source of local information. Newspaper websites are more valued than those of broadcast outlets but “do not score highly as a relied-upon source on any topics.”
