The Internet Radio Revolution Has Arrived

April 2014
Report Cover
The Internet radio revolution has been brewing for some time. Streaming audio has gone mainstream for audiences and advertisers. This revolution is foundational, meaning that new business models are forming around new audience behaviors supported by technology advances.

The audience is reinventing its traditional radio experience in the face of innovative Internet radio services by adopting available new technologies and developing new consumption and engagement behaviors.

Recognizing new opportunities to reach and engage with these audiences, national and local advertisers are shifting budget into Internet radio services. Broadcasters are providing their own streaming services, and it's inevitable that advertisers will follow the growing consumer adoption of both broadcast and pure play streaming services.

Is this revolution here to stay? Well, yes. In the sense that the established audio order, largely defined by broadcast radio, is being structurally reinvented.
