Nielsen Expands Nielsen Media Impact To Include Radio
Enhances Cross-Platform Media Planning Solution
Today, Nielsen (NYSE: NLSN) announced that Nielsen Media Impact (NMI) is expanding to include Radio as a media type available within its leading national cross-media planning and optimization solution. Nielsen Media Impact is a cross-platform planning solution available at a local and national level that allows users to understand cross-media reach, frequency, and duplication using advanced audience segments. This enables agencies, media owners, and advertisers to reach their desired audience with cost-effective media plans.
The Radio data will be derived from Nielsen’s National Regional Database (NRD) comprising Portable People Meter (PPM) and diary data. Nielsen national radio data within Nielsen Media Impact allows buyers and sellers to understand the value of radio as a medium at the national level and the incremental reach achieved by including national radio in the media mix. Along with the ability to compare radio with other national media, radio within Nielsen Media Impact is flexible and includes several market breaks, including Custom Dayparts, Radio Formats, Owner Groups and RADAR Networks.
“Having radio data incorporated into Nielsen Media Impact fills a clear need we have heard from the market,” said Jay Nielsen, VP, Product Leadership, Nielsen. “This enables clients to understand a more complete picture around advertising efficiencies across the media that consumers spend time with the most.”
“As the leading audio company in America with over a quarter of a billion monthly listeners on broadcast radio alone, we believe that including radio in Nielsen’s Media Impact offers a needed resource, enabling true comprehensive, cross-platform and cost-effective media plans for our national clients,” said Brian Kaminsky, President Revenue and Data Operations | iHeartMedia.
One Platform. All Media. Nielsen’s Total Media Fusion, the data fueling Nielsen Media Impact, incorporates the most granular respondent-level data from Nielsen measurement panels along with census calibration for the most comprehensive view of the media landscape in one data set. This means access to the de-duplicated insights necessary to make the most informed cross-platform decisions about where and when to engage your audience with advertising. The Total Media Fusion incorporates the following data: TV, radio, VOD, SVOD, mobile, tablet, desktop, print, cinema and digital place-based media.
Earlier this year, Nielsen launched Local Nielsen Media Impact, a local planning and optimization tool available in the 25 DMAs with Local People Meter (LPM) data, which included radio listening from the PPM’s in those markets. Having radio data in both national and local planning tools will give clients access to more comprehensive data for cross-media planning.

RADIO ON THE DIGITAL CLIFF: A Study of the Changing Audio Entertainment Paradigm and Radio’s ResponsePosted by:Consultant, August - 30 - 2017
New Report Examines Changing Market for Audio Entertainment and Threats to Traditional Broadcast Radio
Highly respected music industry expert, and head of the Steinhardt Music Business Program at New York University, Larry Miller, released a special report today, titled PARADIGM SHIFT: WHY RADIO MUST ADAPT TO THE RISE OF DIGITAL, which details the current state of terrestrial radio in the United States. The report examines the significant business and social challenges faced by one of the country’s oldest media sectors. The paper was published this morning on Mr. Miller’s website, Musonomics.com, and provides an in-depth analysis of how and why audiences are abandoning radio as their primary source of music discovery and enjoyment and the resulting diminishing economic importance of radio to the music industry.
“Terrestrial radio is facing monumental challenges as streaming continues on its path to becoming the go-to place for current and future generations to enjoy and discover music,” says Professor Miller. “The emergence of new platforms and the corresponding behaviors of Gen Z listeners have reduced radio’s relevance to a very important and growing demographic. Advertisers are challenging radio’s audience targeting and measurement methods as they seek ways of connecting directly with consumers via mobile telephones and other platforms. Radio is at a crossroads as an industry.”
The report also reveals that the rise of digital music services like Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora are causing traditional radio listeners, particularly younger ones (12-24 years old), to flee terrestrial radio on a massive scale. This exodus is creating a dire situation for radio where the format’s long-held monopoly as the only audio choice behind the wheel is overthrown by new technology. Additionally, radio’s dominance as a promotional vehicle for popular music and as a taste-making platform for new recording artists is being contested like never before.
Among the report’s conclusions:
- New research confirms that Generation Z, who are projected to account for 40% of all consumers in the U.S. by 2020, are showing little interest in traditional media, including radio, having grown up in an on-demand digital environment.
- AM/FM radio is in the midst of a massive drop off as a music discovery tool by younger generations.
- By 2020, 75% of new cars are expected to be “connected,” breaking radio’s monopoly on the car dashboard and relegating AM/FM to just one of a series of audio options behind the wheel.
- Year over year, radio advertising revenue dropped 4% while digital/mobile spend was up 11% according to Standard Media Index’s Q2 2017 report, showing that even in local advertising, radio cannot sustain its dominance.
- Notwithstanding the digital radio platform developed by iHeartRADIO, for which the payment of a performance royalty is required, broadcast radio does not pay a sound recording performance royalty to artists and rights owners. Economists have concluded that innovation has stalled out, because, in general, the business remains focused on driving EBITDA through reduced content cost (no sound recording royalty obligation) as a result of government price suppression (to $0) by current public policy.
- As a result, radio’s importance to music industry revenue is rapidly diminishing. In a business now driven by access to music versus ownership, record labels have shifted their focus to digital platforms to introduce new artists and monetize back catalog.
