"<a href="https://pe.scng.com/hubfs/2018/Media%20Kits/2018%20PE%20Media%20Kit.pdf?t=1536707304482">Media Kit</a>."] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> The paper is targeted to residents of Inland Southern California. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> According to recent data, readership is split fairly evenly between men and women, and the median age of readers is 44 years.[10. "<a href="https://pe.scng.com/hubfs/2018/Media%20Kits/2018%20PE%20Media%20Kit.pdf?t=1536707304482">Media Kit</a>."] Data also shows that over 50% are married and college educated. 45% are White, while 40% are Hispanic and the average household income is around $73,000.[11. "<a href="https://pe.scng.com/hubfs/2018/Media%20Kits/2018%20PE%20Media%20Kit.pdf?t=1536707304482">Media Kit</a>."] Local libraries in the area subscribe to the paper and most local coffee shops have copies available to their patrons. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> As <em>The Press-Enterprise</em> is a civilian newspaper, the average reader probably has a layperson's familiarity with LIS topics. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> While the paper does discuss world news and events, potential authors must be aware that the primary goal of the paper is to support the local community. Articles and stories that focus on local news and events have a greater likelihood of being well received. The community the paper serves is highly diverse and contains readers with a variety of different cultures, backgrounds, and educations, and potential authors should be aware and respectful of this diversity. <strong>Last updated: </strong>September 26, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
