First listener survey results after Norway's digital switchover #RDE18

Wednesday 21 March, 2018

Only three months after FM was switched off in Norway, a listener survey (Digital Radio Survey, Kantar Media) shows the new digital stations have up to one third of all radio listening. 

Most radio listeners still tune into radio, and the new digital stations have shown strong growth. 

These are some of the findings presented by a group of Norwegian stakeholders at Radiodays Europe 2018, the radio industry's annual European assembly. A new report from the year of switchover can be viewed online at www.radiodso.com. 

Test driving an Audi connected car dashboard #RDE18

Tuesday 20 March, 2018

The latest Audi A8 is on display at RadioDays Europe.

Audi is a thought leading company when it comes to connected cars.

The model on display has a fully connected dashboard entertainment system, which can use the embedded SIM Card in the car or tether to the SIM from the driver's phone.

It can seamlessly switch between the different transmissions of broadcast radio, AM, FM and Digital Radio, saving the driver from incurring data costs, and when the signal goes out of range it can find the station again from its stream to continue listening.

Financial analyst off track with his predictions about radio industry disruption

Friday 05 January, 2018

Comment by Steve Ahern

Citi analyst David Kaynes appears to have lost his way in an analysis of the radio industry's next challenge - digital disruption in cars.

Perhaps he is using an old street directory, instead of a mapping app, because his analysis seems way out of date and fails to take into account many of the things the radio industry has already done to prepare for digital disruption in cars.
