Lets put you in control !

As listeners get more and more frustrated by less choices on their local radio stations, they find a world of choices on the web. Broadcasting over the Internet transcends the limits of terrestrial broadcasting and listenership is growing. Traditional radio stations reach local and sometimes regional areas while Internet Radio Stations are reaching a worldwide audience.

According to the new Arbitron Webcast Ratings, currently measuring 2,233 stations and channels, these Internet channels represent more than 16,800,000 total hours of listening in one month alone, which means that tens of thousands of people are now tuning into online radio stations at work, at home and at play and that number is compounding.

  • 19% of on-line users have actually listened to radio on-line
  • This means that 6% of all Americans have listened to radio on-line
  • 76% of on-line users indicate they are listening to Internet Radio more often
  • Out of the total Internet radio listenership 3% are 12-17, 14% are 18-24, 61% are 25-44

Considering the rapid growth of the Internet and the nature of downloading streaming programs and accessing audio on the Internet, Internet radio is off to an extremely fast start.
