Surprising though it is to the many people dazzled by the constant stream of new technology launches, good old radio (meaning that broadcast linear stream of predominantly lives presenter-led audio content) remains in great shape. The facts speak for themselves: record audiences of 48 million (91%) of adults listen to radio every week for an average of 21 hours, with nearly 35 million tuning into the commercial sector alone. It’s no surprise also that the IPA’s TouchPoints 4 study demonstrates that radio is still the nation’s second most-consumed medium after TV, accounting for over a quarter of the average adult’s time spent with media across the day.
