A Gallup poll in June found that a resounding 55% of Americans still use the television as their primary news source. In the past, sitting down and reading the paper or other publications might have been the best way to get updates, but that trend seems to be dying out. In fact, the poll found that just nine percent of people get their news from the paper. This means that news stations like Channel 6 Portland Maine are a prime resource for anyone looking to keep up with the latest stories. Though eight percent of TV watchers turn to Fox News and seven percent head to CNN, local news stations are the premiere choice for 4% of people, and nearly everyone will check in from time to time to get updates about their community.

By watching Channel 6 News Portland residents will be able to get all the information about the stories that are most important to them. For instance, right now they might learn more about the beginning of Shenna Bellows’ Senate campaign or about how the TSA launched a new program designed to allow certain passengers to pass through screening checkpoints faster at the Portland International Jetport. These stories are intriguing and important to Portland residents, and learning more about them by tuning to Portland Channel 6 is always a good idea.

Of course, by watching Channel 6 News Portland residents will also be able to keep up with all of their favorite local sports teams and athletes. There is a big population of Red Sox fans in the state, in part because the Portland Sea Dogs are a Red Sox affiliate, and they are currently in the World Series. So, naturally, many people will watch Portland News Channel 6 to get highlights and analysis. They can also find information about local college teams and information about the UMaine college basketball team getting ready for its season.

Though lots of people enjoy sitting down in the morning or after a long day of work and watching Channel 6 News Portland to get updates, many simply lack the time. Busy schedules often make it tough to watch news programs at the same time every day, so many are turning to the internet. In fact, the Gallup poll found that 21% of people prefer the internet. So though TV reigns supreme as the prime American news source, the fact that the web has replaced newspapers and radio means that it might challenge TV in the future and provide a complete shift in the news landscape.
