The way Hispanics consume news is changing, according to a new report from the Pew Hispanic Center.
More Latino adults are relying on English-language television, print, radio and internet news outlets, recent surveys have shown.
Pew data showed that in 2012, 82 percent of Hispanic adults consumed some news in English, up from 78 percent in 2006. Spanish news consumption fell from 78 percent in 2006 to 68 percent in 2012.
Fifty percent of Latino adults reported that they get their news in both Spanish and English, a seven percent decrease from 2010.
“Even though the share of Hispanic adults who consume news media in Spanish has declined, the number of potential Spanish news media consumers is growing as a result of the rapid overall rise in the number of Hispanics in the U.S.,” according to the report.
