Local newspapers are rated as by far the most popular media source for people who want to make their voice heard about important issues which affect them, according to an independent study, the Newspaper Society claimed today.
The local press rated 60 per cent in the study compared to scores of 15 per cent for council publications and 11 per cent for local radio.
The Newspaper Society is to publish the full findings of the study, looking at how local council news and information are consumed by the public, which was conducted by TNS-RI Omnibus, to coincide with Local Newspaper Week, 10-16 May.
