RADIO: Panel Discussion

Is Streaming The Future Of Audio?

Going into the 21st Century, terrestrial radio owned car listenership, home listenership and was the main delivery system for new music. Now, even satellite-radio is facing price-point competition from the Spotifys, Pandoras and Apples. Last year, subscription service sales jumped 44% to 20 million, and there were more than 223 billion streams worldwide. Must history repeat itself? Some industry observers are calling it radio’s “Napster year”in a good way – a chance to anticipate and innovate while they still have the revenue and audience to make it happen.
