The gradual decline in local television viewership resumed in 2015, after a brief break the previous two years. Local TV newscasts saw their viewership drop not only in all three key time slots, but also during some nontraditional time slots, an area of growth in past years. Stations generated less revenue in 2015 than the year before, but the decline was around what might be expected in a non-election year. The question of local TV’s future in a digital era has not gone away, as the industry remains strategically focused on its traditional viewing platform, where its core audience is largely still found.
