Radio Ratings are in a Heap of Trouble

If you can't trust the Nielsen ratings in America's largest radio market, then where can you trust them? A few days ago, Nielsen delayed the release of May ratings for Los Angeles when "inconsistencies" resulted in the need for more "quality control reviews." Since then, the problem has only deepened. From the LA Times: Nielsen has been attempting to verify that individuals who participated in its sample audience panel were truly independent and did not have ties to any radio stations or radio personalities that were being measured. The ratings agency said Wednesday that it needed to … [Read more...]

What is Sean Hannity Smoking?

“It’s the single biggest threat to the radio business today, the measurement system is flawed in a dramatic way.” So says Sean Hannity in Radio Ink: For example, in New York, if you’re listening to The Sean Hannity Radio Show on the WOR website, even if you have a Portable People Meter, I can’t get credit for that. We know that WABC, at times, had well over 1.4 million people listening online. If we can’t get credit for that, then all the data that’s being put out there is just inaccurate. Then you add to that those people who listen to me on satellite. That’s unmeasured. If people listen … [Read more...]

It’s Time to Rethink Rewards Programs

The logic of the famous 20:80 rule dictates that the more effort any radio brand invests in its biggest fans, the more that has potential to pay off with a stream of loyalty, usage, preference, ratings, and even brand evangelism. And that brings us to the idea of rewarding our fans so as to encourage their behavior and incite more just like it. But does that mean it's all about contesting? Or is that only the "opening act" of a strong and vibrant rewards program? This is a guest post by Dominick Milano, President of Publisher Development at Triton Digital. It's time for you to rethink … [Read more...]

What Broadcasters MUST Do in the Online Radio Space

What is REALLY going on in the online radio space in local markets all across America? Triton Digital Chief Strategy Officer Patrick Reynolds lifts the veil on one local market, San Diego, at hivio 2013. In this presentation, Patrick brings us up to date on trends in online radio and explains just how much online listening is happening to Pandora at the local market level (it's pretty astounding). In the month before hivio, about two-thirds of the market's online listening was to Pandora, while the rest was spread across an astounding 4,754 different sources, including many broadcasters … [Read more...]

Representing Radio at SXSW

One of the drumbeats at the recent hivio radio ideas festival was that broadcasters spend too much time in their radio-only silos and not nearly enough time crossing media and conference boundaries to mingle with new people and new ideas (indeed, this was one of the motivating drives behind hivio in the first place). Here's a chance for you to change that. Patrick Reynolds, Chief Strategy Officer of Triton Digital, is trying to get a session related to radio and audio on the agenda for the upcoming SXSW conference (you and I are the folks that vote for the "winning" sessions for SXSW). … [Read more...]
