Local TV Viewership Dropping, What are Iowa Stations Doing About It?

Jan 19, 2018

Watching the local evening news on television was once routine in nearly every household. Increasingly, that is no longer the case according to a study by the Pew Research Center. During this hour of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with KCRG-TV's News Director Adam Carros about how his newsroom is handling a decline in viewership. 

He says many networks are working to cut deals with streaming services like Apple TV, Roku, Hulu and Netflix. 

Also joining the program are professor and former director of the Greenlee School of Journalism at Iowa State University Michael Bugeja, and Melissa Tully, assistant professor of journalism at the University of Iowa.
