Nielsen Study Shows The Power Of Small & Medium Sized Markets Nielsen has released a new batch of data from its 2015 State of the Media: Audio Today series of reports, this time examining small and medium sized markets. This data found that 65 million Americans (ages 12+) are using radio every week in America’s small and medium cities. That’s over a quarter of all listeners nationwide reached in just those markets alone.
The report also noted that the majority of consumers in these markets are connecting to the radio and spending a lot of time listening as well. More than 86 percent of consumers tune in during the week and spend more than 15 hours of their media time with radio.
So who are the listeners in the 215 local markets that are covered in this report? Small and medium market radio listeners are evenly split when it comes to gender. Radio also reaches across the generations — 86.8 percent of Boomers (aged 50-74), 86.5 percent of Millennials (12-34) and 89.9 percent of Gen Xers (35-49) are reached by radio in these markets each week.
Among multicultural listeners, 88.4 percent of all Hispanics in these small and medium markets are tuning in, spending over 16 hours of time listening each week. Working Hispanic adults spend over 18 hours with the radio — the largest amount of time of any full-time employed age group or demographic. In addition, over 87 percent of African American consumers in these markets are reached weekly by the radio—listening for 17-and-a-half hours.
"The power of radio in small and medium markets should not be overlooked," says Jon Miller, Nielsen VP of Research. "In fact, a majority of radio usage in these markets come from employed consumers who are out of their home and one step closer to the point of purchase. That’s a solid foundation for both programmers and marketers to build on."
