Media Use Survey May Surprise You

It’s probably no surprise that radio station 106.1 FM (KISS) is popular with your fellow DCCCD students. After all, it’s one of the most popular stations in the metroplex. But did you know that students spend more time listening to Christian music and talk radio stations than they do sports talk stations?

This and many other fascinating bits of information are contained in a survey of how DCCCD students use the media and spend their time. The anonymous survey, compiled in November 2009, helps DCCCD with its communication efforts.

A couple other tidbits from the survey:

  • About 40 percent of you tune in to Fox News for news and information. “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report” combined are sources for news and information for more than 10 percent of students.
  • MySpace is popular, with 51 percent of you reporting having accounts, but Facebook is more popular, with 71 percent having accounts.

There’s plenty more to learn about the media preferences of your fellow students.

And for those who participated in the survey: Thank you! And congratulations to Judy Musser, a survey participant whose name was drawn at random for a free iPod
