Radio Ratings Scorecard and Commentary

By Clark Smidt -- Broadcast Connector

When we last dove into markets 11-20, Canada had just pulled Voltair off-line. Now, we're on the heels of the double secret probation Nielsen webinar. Whatever ever goes down the wish list beyond accurate recording is: Larger sample, more PPMs more often to new respondents, include 65-74s as the new power money demo and please post a total audience share/cume number for every station meeting minimum listening levels. Radio's Audio Delivery is more than Hot! Let's prove it!

For your review, here's the "print & share" RBR Score Card with March/April/May/June trends from May 23-June 20. Once again, only 6+ Nielsen subscribers are there to share from the current process. Nielsen Audio Portable People Meter / PPM Markets #11 Detroit thru #20 Denver:

Takeaways:

* Voltair or Not Voltair; That is the question. Getting it right is the answer!

* While better processing should mean better listening, whose ears do we want -- human or mechanical?

* At CBS/FM in the '70s, I carried around the favored, strategic Optimod settings in my wallet.

* Sounding great is Radio's mandate. Who and what do we want to hear it?

* Oldies, Classic Hits, R & B Gold, Modern Standards, Album Favorites, all on the corner of Fresh & Familiar.

* Radio has momentum and innovation keeps it going!

* June numbers crank up the Change Machine
