Print Newspapers win out over online (Canada)

From the Media Daily News:

A new survey of Canadian adults in 53 media markets indicates continuing popularity for print newspapers north of the border, with a surprisingly low number of survey respondents only reading content online.The survey covered populations in markets served by a total of 81 Canadian daily newspapers (as well as 60 community newspapers in 33 of these markets), representing 72% of the total Canadian population.

Overall, the new readership survey from NADbank found that 14.7 million Canadian adults, or 78% of the total population, read a print or online edition of their daily newspaper at least once a week. However, the print edition is still far more popular among adult readers in general, with 73% reading the print edition once a week versus just 22% for the online edition. Even more remarkable, a mere 4% of Canadian adults only read newspapers online.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
