Amidst daily talk about the death of news and good reporting and the demise of print newspapers, come news that NPR is thriving. MEDIABISTRO.COM is reporting that the cumulative audience for NPR's daily news programs hit 20.9 million people a week last year, which is a 9% increase over the previous year.
MORNING EDITION's average daily audience of 7.6 million, is about 60% larger than the audience for "Good Morning America," and NPR's 26.4 million listeners weekly trumps USA TODAY's 2.3 million daily circulation or FOX NEWS' 2.8 million prime-time audience.
