By far, Quito's most trusted print news source is El Comercio, which also happens to be Ecuador's most popular national newspaper. Other newspapers based in Quito include Hoy, La Hora, Metro Hoy, Ultimas Noticias and El Tel├ęgrafo. A more low-brow newspaper in Quito called Extra focuses on gory news such as murders and traffic accidents.

In terms of television, the four national stations are Teleamazonas, Ecuavisa, Gamavision and Telecentro (TC) Televisi├│n. The public station Ecuador TV used to be the only government-run television station, but Gamavision and TC Television have since been absorbed by the government and are both currently run and broadcast by it. Of course, there are numerous smaller local channels and private broadcast networks as well. Canal Uno and Televisora Nacional are some popular ones in the Quito area. In addition to news, stations televise soap operas, game shows and dubbed-over American television programs. All of these national and local stations broadcast exclusively in Spanish, but it is possible to access English-speaking news, sports and entertainment channels if hooked up to cable networks.

Radio stations broadcast both music and news regionally. In Quito, Central AM and Sonorama FM are sources of sports broadcasts and news, while Radio Disney 90.5 FM, America 104.5 FM, Centro 97.7 FM, JC Radio 107.3 FM and Musical FM 95.3 are popular music stations for latin hits, jazz and rock.
