Why do people like to follow sports news? There are several reasons, including a sense of community and connection. For one thing, people like to follow sports events and stories because they can identify with certain players, teams, and players’ stories. Sports also provide a unique outlet for people to share their feelings and thoughts about different topics. A study by the Reuters Institute Digital News Survey found that 80% of Americans find it important to follow local and regional news.
Research shows that Americans like to follow news stories, even if they are not very interested in them. The age difference in interest between the two groups is striking. While younger people are less interested in news, older adults are more likely to read or watch in-depth news pieces. This difference is not surprising, considering the different types of media that people follow. Even though younger people are more likely to watch and read news, their interest in sports and entertainment news is not as great as their interest in other topics.
