Nearly a Quarter of Americans Get News from Podcasts

Pew Research Center: Nearly a quarter of Americans get news from podcasts.

Younger adults are more likely than older adults to at least sometimes get news from podcasts. One-in-three adults ages 18 to 29 say they at least sometimes get news from podcasts, compared with 12% of adults 65 and older. 29% of adults ages 30 to 49 get news from podcasts at least sometimes; 18% of adults ages 50 to 64 (18%) say they do the same. Men and women get news from podcasts at similar rates (25% and 21%, respectively).

Those with more formal education and higher incomes are more likely to get news at least sometimes from podcasts. U.S. adults with at least a college degree are more likely to get news at least sometimes from podcasts than those with a high school education or less (28% vs. 17%, respectively).
