Public Broadcasting Radio succeeding, television slipping

two networks duel over news

audio: what you're hearing in your car, listening to before work, or gossiping over at lunch. the straight-foward + sassy stuff.

television: what you're watching while eating breakfast or before falling asleep. the sad + sappy stuff.

audio delivers news and entertainment content to local communities through smartphones, computers, and across airwaves. National Public Radio (NPR) is a well-known example of audio broadcasting. On average, 26 million people listen to public radio weekly. About 1,000 individual public stations in the U.S. carry NPR programming. To keep up with the demand of online streaming, NPR has even designed two electronic apps which can be found on iPhone and Android.

television broadcasts educational, cultural and news content. Individual stations often produce their own local news and public affairs programming. WCCO and Kare11 are both examples of local [Minnesota] news stations. PBS NewsHour, a national television station, provides audiences with news-specific data that other stations cannot provide. In 2015 the station saw a 2% decline in viewership, attracting 828,000 viewers on average compared to that of NPR.

NO, radio isn't dying.
