Online Radio Listenership Up 36% in 2008
According to AccuStream iMedia Reseach via Hypebot, online music radio listening hours increased 37.6% to 6.67 billion total hours in 2008. This is great news for the likes of KEXP, WOXY and the Current who have been garnering national listenerships through their website and podcasts.
I, for one, listened to approximately 40% more online radio in 2008 than 2007, so it looks like they did their research.
Top 4 on WOXY right now:
*MP3: Peter, Bjorn and John - "Nothing To Worry About"
*MP3: Heartless Bastards - "Hold Your Head High"
*MP3: The Decemberists - "The Rake's Song"
*MP3: N.A.S.A. - "Gifted"
