Stat Snapshot: Web’s Audience Growth


It is no secret that consumers are turning to online news services en masse, but the The Pew Report on the State of the Media 2010 provided a statistical basis for publishers piqued interest in investing into digital formats.



Not only are consumers turning away from print, but newsrooms are slicing staff and pulling in outside talent, from the finance and technology industries to create new revenue models and to hone strategy.
