Congratulations to Don Peterson and the rest of the 2013 inductees!
It’s no secret that mobile radio listening is growing in Houston and worldwide, but the rapid adoption is surprising even to those who’ve been in Radio for years. The video above shows the number of mobile listeners and the number of desktop listeners for Clear Channel Media + Entertainment’s 6 Houston radio stations when listened to via iHeartRadio.com or the iHeartRadio app.
There are nearly 3 times as many people tuning in from a mobile device than are from desktop computers. It’s crazy because a couple years ago, mobile listening wasn’t eve an option…now it’s dwarfing desktop listening.
In comparison to terrestrial radio stations…a weekly cume of 186,000 (CCM+E Houston’s number of weekly mobile listeners) would rank around 24th or 25th on a Houston-Galveston 6+ ranker.
It is very smart of Arbitron to address social media’s impact on radio ratings clearly, as they have in the policy brief linked above. It’s beneficial for all broadcasters and web publishers to understand Arbitron’s view on ratings distortion and the importance of social media’s ability to engage and influence an audience. It’s comforting to know that Arbitron is monitoring websites and radio station social media pages to insure that companies aren’t using social media to boost their terrestrial radio audience delivery by engaging with respondents.
Of course, this point becomes a bit murky because internet radio providers aren’t really addressed and are harder to regulate at this point. These companies are hustling for an online listening session, just everyone else.
When a true multi-platform audience measurement delivery system is in place for media and entertainment providers to track total audience delivery, the best practices will probably be updated again.
