When you think of radio broadcasters, you probably think of the big-name broadcasters, the ones who get big syndication deals.
But there are a lot of smaller ones, and the biggest ones are almost always just the ones with big-time syndication contracts.
It’s no secret that they often suck.
But what about a radio station’s average listener?
You probably don’t know that from the sound of it, right?
That’s where our new research comes in.
For every 5,000 listeners, there’s a radio broadcaster who’s consistently ranked in the bottom five percent of listeners for their station.
It also means that when you think about how much money a radio host makes, you’re probably thinking of their station’s advertising budget.
The radio advertising market is one of the biggest markets in the United States, with advertisers spending $1.3 trillion in 2013.
And radio is a big part of that.
The industry spends more than $1 billion each year on radio, according to the National Radio Players Association, with stations in each state receiving $1 million each.
And for every dollar spent on advertising, radio stations get an additional $1 in revenue.
Radio stations are, in part, the only source of radio-specific programming that reaches the ears of the American public.
The National Association of Broadcasters’ radio advertising campaign, which launched in 2012, included radio stations that play classical music, talk shows, and podcasts.
In order to measure how radio station advertising affects listeners, we surveyed listeners of all stations in the U.S. and analyzed data from the National Association for Broadcasters.
We asked listeners how they felt about radio stations’ advertising budgets.
The results showed that stations with high ad budgets have more people in the audience, but that also means they tend to be a more expensive market for listeners to get into.
What are the factors that make a station’s ad budget so high?
The ad budget can be an indicator of a station, but it’s not always clear.
In the study, we also asked listeners to rate each station on a scale of 1 (worst) to 10 (best) based on how much they would pay to listen to an ad.
While we didn’t get a lot from listeners about their favorite stations, it did reveal a few interesting trends: Radio stations with the lowest ad budgets tend to attract people who are more likely to pay for subscription services.
For example, if a station is a major player in the world of classical music and classical podcasts, people will pay more to listen there than listeners who might be interested in listening to other radio stations.
As listeners’ ratings on their stations dropped, their overall audience increased.
And people who like to listen and tune in to classical music also like to pay to subscribe to podcasts, talk show hosts, and other radio-based programs.
These findings suggest that radio is one important way for listeners in general to discover new programming.
And in some cases, that’s a good thing.
With a huge and growing audience, radio is now more than a way to reach an audience.
It is also a way for radio stations to reach their audience in a unique way, so listeners have more choice in which program to listen, and in what order.
Radio stations have a great track record of being responsive to listener feedback.
In 2015, NPR asked listeners what they wanted to hear on the air.
They received more than 1.4 million responses, and nearly half of them were on a specific topic.
Radio stations responded to the survey in several ways: by asking listeners to provide their favorite show to listen in on, by providing information on how to listen online and through the NPR app, and by answering a survey of listeners.
NPR listeners liked to hear that NPR is responsive to their feedback.
Of course, not everyone is a fan of radio stations responding to listener emails.
One listener we talked to said that he had a problem with how stations responded when he asked if they were listening to podcasts.
That person had no idea what a podcast was, so he asked for an example of what he meant.
We also asked readers to tell us which stations they thought were the worst, based on their ratings.
In the end, we found that listeners preferred stations with more information about their programming, and more options for tuning in to their favorite shows.
So if you want to learn how to read the ratings of a radio program, you can read about our methodology here.
So which stations are most likely to disappoint you?
We also looked at how many times each station responded to listener comments about its advertising budget, its programming, or its radio coverage.
And we found a trend: stations with a lower ad budget tended to respond to more comments about their advertising budget and less comments about the quality of their radio coverage, while stations with higher ad budgets tended to be more likely and respond to fewer comments about either.
