Survey: News Consumers Making Transition

NEW YORK (AP) - A survey says consumers are making recent technology part of their news habits and are spending more time following what's going on in the world.

The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press said Sunday
people spend an average of 57 minutes per day getting news from
television, radio and newspapers.

That's the same as 10 years ago.

But people now also spend an average of 13 minutes per day getting
news online.

Roughly 33 percent of people Pew surveyed said they went online for news the previous day.

That number jumps to 44 percent when cell phones, e-mail, social networks and podcasts are added in.
