ESPN: leading mobile news service

ESPN is leading news source for wireless Web in the US market
Stephen Baker

I just got a release from M:Metrics about wireless news traffic. Sports site ESPN is the top source for news on the Wireless Web, with 4.9 million unique users. It beats out Yahoo!, which leads for news and weather.

Does this mean that our society cares more about sports than anything else? Or is it just that the time-sensitive nature of sports lends itself more than news to wireless access? Maybe the next round of presidential debates would get a bigger audience if the candidates debated while shooting hoops, perhaps playing a little game of HORSE or Around the World. I'm only half kidding.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
