Podcast listening growing in France | Radio Futures | Scoop.it

Radio listeners show an increased interest for "catch-up radio" via podcasts, according to a Mediamétrie-eStats study. The average podcast-listener downloads 15.5 podcasts per month, and 78% of downloaded podcasts are actually listened to, mostly at home on a computer. The most “pioneering” audience group in podcasts are 25-34 year-old Parisians.

Radio Is An Emotional Attachment

Data from Jacobs Media’s new study suggest that focusing on connecting emotionally and meaningfully with listeners is radio’s best avenue toward remaining relevant and vibrant in the face of new digital competition. While “favorite songs” and local personalities are the highest ranking elements in considering the benefits of radio, there are 4 emotional triggers that listeners value: Having a radio on while they work, Helping them get in a better mood, Providing a feeling of companionship and Offering an escape from the pressures of everyday life. The survey also found that fans of news-talk and sports formats were more likely to turn to their phone seeking streaming content. By far, sports-centric listeners are most likely to follow a sports station or personality on Twitter.

Why Would Microsoft Buy Rdio?

Why Would Microsoft Buy Rdio? | Radio Futures | Scoop.it
Microsoft is hotly rumored to be acquiring music streaming service Rdio.

 

Microsoft is hotly rumored to be acquiring music streaming service Rdio. If true, the news would make Microsoft the latest in a string of hardware giants including Apple, Samsung, and HTC to pour an increasing amount of attention and money into creating or acquiring services to help them move away from their reputations as solely "device" companies.

And they're all looking to music services to get them there. Digital music, after all, is a still-growing business. According to recent stats from Nielsen, digital album sales are up 15% from last year.

Rdio cofounder Janus Friis, who started the company with his old Skype cofounder Niklas Zennström, is also working on an online video service and Netflix competitor, Vdio, which, potentially, would play nicely with Rdio on the Xbox.

Radio and mobile phones

Radio and mobile phones | Radio Futures | Scoop.it

What do you use your mobile phone for? Angry Birds, obviously, but excepting that, you probably use it for email, the odd phone call, a text message or two, and the occasional bit of web browsing.

 

Among the highs and the lows of the new RAJAR figures, UK radio’s quarterly listening survey, comes news of another use of a mobile phone… as a radio.

 

17% of adults aged 15+ say they’ve listened to radio via a mobile phone: a figure that’s up by almost a quarter year-on-year. For 15-24s, over a third claim to have listened to the radio in this way. This figure’s growing, particularly for older, 25+ listeners.

40,125 millions de personnes ont écouté la radio tous les jours cet été. 1ere la musicale NRJ devant RTL. France Inter réalise un record

40,125 millions de personnes ont écouté la radio tous les jours cet été. 1ere la musicale NRJ devant RTL. France Inter réalise un record | Radio Futures | Scoop.it

NRJ a été la radio la plus écoutée cet été, passe devant RTL

La radio musicale NRJ a été la plus écoutée cet été en terme d'audience cumulée, détrônant la généraliste RTL qui est passée à la deuxième place, a annoncé jeudi Médiamétrie dans une étude sur cette période particulière de l'année où les gens écoutent moins la radio.

C'est la première fois que NRJ se place à la première place du classement en audience cumulée depuis le lancement de cette étude en 2006.

 

L'audience cumulée mesure le pourcentage de personnes ayant écouté la radio au moins une fois dans la journée, tandis que la part d'audience tient compte de la durée d'écoute.

En termes de part d'audience, RTL demeure largement en tête (10,8%), suivie de France Inter (9,5%) et NRJ se retrouve troisième (6,9%).

 

L'institut Médiamétrie précise que ces résultats d'audience ne peuvent être comparés qu'à des résultats portant sur la période juillet-août précédente, du fait d'une méthodologie spécialement adaptée à la période d'été.

 

Cependant lors de la vague précédente en avril-juin, NRJ s'était déjà retrouvée en tête du peloton devant RTL, pour la première fois depuis 2006.

 

Cet été, l'audience cumulée de NRJ s'est établie à 10,6% contre 9,3% un an plus tôt, et celle de RTL à 10,2%, inchangé par rapport à 2011.

 

France Inter a réalisé un record depuis le lancement de cette étude, en atteignant 9,8% (9,1% en 2011). France Info est montée à 8,5% (7,8%) et Europe 1 à 7,2% (7%).

 

En juillet et août, parmi les 13 ans et plus, 40,125 millions de personnes ont écouté la radio tous les jours en semaine, soit près de 100.000 auditeurs de plus qu'à la même période un an plus tôt.

La différence s'explique principalement par l'augmentation du taux de vacanciers: il était de 16,5% en moyenne par jour en juillet-août, contre 13,6% un an plus tôt.

La durée d'écoute est restée stable, à 2H53 contre 2H54 l'an dernier.
