The Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) and Gallup have released the findings of the inaugural BBG Research Series briefing, Iran Media Use 2012. The findings show how Iranians use television, radio, and digital media. For example, 39% of adults in Iran report using the Internet in the previous week. These results, based on telephone surveys that Gallup conducted in 2012, provide insights into Iranians’ media wants and needs.
