How, When & Where

How: Do you hear about major news event from others at the office or at school? Does someone call you to tell you what’s happened? Do you read a paper newspaper? Do you read an online newspaper? Do you listen to broadcast radio? Do you listen to streaming radio? Do you get your news from Podcasts?

When: Do you listen to the news before you get out of bed in the morning.
