There’s plenty of newspaper hate going around lately, but as Ad Age reports, some cities still have love for the archaic things. A report by Scarborough — a market research company — found that newspaper readership isn’t evenly divided across the nation, and is at its highest in the Northeast.
The data showed that Pittsburgh is the best city for a print newspaper, with 51 percent of people saying they read the paper at least once per day. [Editor’s note: I’m from Pittsburgh, so f*ck yeah! Also, go Steelers.] This is much higher than the national average, which is only 35 percent. Albany was tied for second with Hartford/New Haven, with 49 percent reading a print paper daily. Rounding out the top five cities for print papers was another tie, between New York, Toledo and Buffalo, all at 47 percent.
The worst city for a print newspaper was Atlanta, with only 23 percent of adults claiming to read one each day. If you know someone from there, go ahead and slap them.
