    • A Quick Look at the US Market www.midiaconsulting.com – Mark Mulligan - September 2013 • Robust Interactive Radio sector (Pandora = 6.8% radio listening) • Strong satellite radio sector (25 million Sirius Subscribers) • 58% of ad agencies are more interested in streaming radio than a year ago • 86% ad agencies same – or lower – levels of interest in traditional radio • Spot advertising down 2% • Digital radio ad spend up 9% • Total radio ad spend flat
    • What Will Radio Be 5 Years From Now? www.midiaconsulting.com – Mark Mulligan - September 2013 • Radio, and radio-like programming, will become a central tenet of on-demand music services (paid and free) • More radio content will be consumed in a non-linear fashion • Radio will become a key tool for addressing the tyranny of choice • More media consumption time will shift to multi-media devices (tablets, smartphones, laptops) leaving DAB devices vulnerable to obsolescence • Interactive car dashboards will be a threat, but also a great opportunity (lean back experiences are safer in the car) • The importance of DJs and spoken word content will still be key, but contexts will have changed
    • Conclusions www.midiaconsulting.com – Mark Mulligan - September 2013 • Media consumption is rapidly shifting online and onto mobile devices • DAB is a great digital ‘lock-in’ for the home • New emerging digital entertainment services are blurring consumers’ perceptions of what constitutes radio • Tablets and smartphones help break down the distinctions between different media formats • Radio has a big future ahead of it, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a big future for broadcasters • However the big change will be generational rather than immediate
