Advertising and Sponsorship Opportunities


The first consideration for advertisers or anyone assessing the industry will no doubt be audience size. eMarketer reported in 2016 that US monthly digital radio listeners had grown to close to 170 million. That is over 53% of all US citizens and 61% of internet users. (XAPPmedia 2016)

The 2015 Share of Ear study estimates internet radio listening now averages 14 hours and 12 minutes per month across the listening population. (Edison Research)
