A report from the Pew Research Hispanic Center has found a growing share of Latinos get their news in English.

The report said 82 percent of Hispanics get at least some of their news in English. That number is up from 78 percent in 2006.

According to the report, the number of Latinos in the United States who get some of their news in Spanish has declined from 78 percent in 2006 to 68 percent in 2012.

"These results, I think, reflect a number of different ongoing demographic trends within the Latino community," said Mark Hugo Lopez, director of Hispanic research for Pew.

"For example, immigration to the United States has slowed and there are relatively fewer immigrants arriving today than was the case say 10 years ago," he said. "In addition, many Hispanic immigrants who are in the country have been in the United States for 20 years or more. All of that points to a growing number of Hispanics, including Hispanic immigrants, who speak English.”

Half of the Latino adults Pew surveyed said they get their news in both English and Spanish.

Lopez said the findings represent an opportunity for media outlets to provide content in both languages as the Latino population grows. According to the 2011 U.S. Census, Latinos made up the nation's largest minority group, at 52 million, or 16 percent of the population.
