You may have seen the remarkable news that Univision recently became the most watched television network in America. Quartz has some explanatory takes, but today Pew is out with some new data on Hispanic media consumption in the United States. Some takeaways (there’s much more in the report):

— 82 percent of Hispanic adults get at least some news in English, vs. 68 percent in Spanish. The trendlines are toward English as English proficiency grows.

— 86 percent say they get news from television on a typical weekday vs. 56 percent from radio, 56 percent from the Internet, and 42 percent from print newspapers.

— “When asked how often they keep up with the news, 45% of Latino adults say they do so ‘a lot,’ 36% say they keep up with the news ‘some’ and 15% say they don’t keep up with the news much. Just 4% of Latino adults say they do not keep up with the news ‘at all.'”
