This is the third year for the RTDNA/Newhouse School at Syracuse University Survey question: What, if anything, are you doing with OTT? It’s the second year that we’ve asked what, if anything, stations are doing with NextGen TV.
The latest survey from the RTDNA/Newhouse School at Syracuse University shows that more than one in five TV news directors have reported an attack on newsroom employees in 2021. While the survey showed a correlation between the size of the market and the numbers of attacks, news directors in market 101 and smaller reported an increase in attacks compared to 2020.
Local radio and television news played an essential role during 2020 in keeping communities informed during COVID, a nationwide racial reckoning and a treacherous election cycle. 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.
