The Analysts Know Radio

  1. 1. The Analysts Know Radio SNL Kagan sums up its relatively bullish analysis this way: “Although some press recently has called for the eventual extinction of broadcast radio as old media, the industry still reaches more than 235 million listeners and will likely remain a viable business in the long term.” Sources: Per ComScore May 2008 ratings, 143,389,000 people logged into Google in the month of May, and 190,858,000 logged onto the internet in the U.S.. According to Radar Radio reaches more than 235 million listeners over the course of the week according to the RADAR 97 June 2008, Radio Listening Estimates.
  2. 2. The Pundits Know Radio Unlike other media such as newspapers, which may never recover, those forecasters generally think radio will see ad spending begin trending up again around 2011. Recovery will be slow, though, and when it comes radio will be a changed industry with a far bigger online presence than it has today. What radio has going for it is a huge and stable audience, with some 90 percent of Americans listening at some point each week, and it’s also inexpensive relative to television. No less important, media buyers say radio works for advertisers, reaching their targets and driving sales. Kevin Downey Media Life Magazine February 24, 2009
