Your Radio Diet Next Year: 41 Days

Nearly half of our lives are spent with TV, radio, Internet and newspapers, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Its new “Statistical Abstract of the United States: 2007” indicates adults and teens will spend nearly five months — 3,518 hours — next year watching television, surfing the Internet, reading daily newspapers and listening to personal music devices. (There are about 8,760 hours in a year.)
Among the bureau’s findings: People will spend the equivalent of 65 days in front of the TV, 41 days listening to radio and a little over a week on the Internet in 2007. “Adults will spend about a week reading a daily newspaper and teens and adults will spend another week listening to recorded music.” Consumer spending for media is forecast to be $936.75 per person.
