RTDNA-NEWHOUSE SCHOOL AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY SURVEY, PART 1

The first installment of the annual RTDNA/Newhouse School at Syracuse University Newsroom Survey shows that despite facing revenue shortfalls, budget cuts and unprecedented operational challenges, more local TV news aired in 2020 than ever recorded by the long running survey.
