As of the start of 2015, almost 80% (39 of 50) of the top digital news sites were getting more traffic from mobile devices than desktops.
That is according to a just-released annual State of the News Media study from Pew Research Center.
The top 10 digital news sites by total number of uniques for January 2015 were Yahoo-ABC News, CNN, NBC News, Huffington Post, CBS, USA Today, BuzzFeed, the New York Times, Fox News, and The Daily Mail.
Data from various sources — Nielsen, comScore, Kagan, BIA/Kelsey — shows that local TV news viewership is up slightly for the evening news (3%) and morning news (2%), and is showing stronger growth in early morning and midday news.
Network newscasts saw a second straight year of audience growth— 5% of the evening news, 2% for morning, and the broadcast evening news still draws a collective 24 million viewers. On the cable side, median viewership over a 24-hour period was down 7% across Fox, CNN and MSNBC to 1.8 million, with Fox still the clear leader. It was the first time that median figure had dropped since 2010.
