CORNWALL Ontario – That wacky Bill Kingston from Corus Radio weighed into the South Stormont News issue in his commentary this morning. Bill prattles about Newspapers being dead yet his own radio station’s website is geared to feel like a newspaper itself with the very newsy like name of The Cornwall Daily.
While the medium of Printed newspaper is dying (with the exception of community papers with older populations such as South Stormont and the area) Mr. Kingston fails to mention the soaring of Online newspaper viewership . He also neglects to state how far back viewer wise for example his own medium, radio, is behind this online newspaper, and the Free Holder.
While some many not enjoy CFN, they still read it. I sincerely doubt that Corus Radio has even 25% of the audience that we do here at CFN; yet his commentary this morning clearly takes a shot at a decision made by the council of South Stormont.
Radio using a rating system that extrapolates numbers from a small pool. Online we use actual hard core numbers based on viewer interactions. Which do you think more accurate or reflective?
