Radio & Podcast News – AM/FM streaming up in eastern markets

Numeris insights for winter 2024 include that AM/FM streaming increased by five percentage points in the Montreal Anglo market. Live radio streaming maintained a 10% share of tuning, A12+ and 18-34, and 12% A25-54. According to the latest PPM data, Numeris says Montreal and Toronto saw a rise in out-of-home (OOH) tuning, notably with French-speaking listeners in Montreal which saw a bump from 57 to 64%. The Vancouver market saw the biggest drop in OOH listening, falling from 74 to 69%. Radio’s average weekly reach in the PPM markets remains stable at 84%, with Montreal Franco leading listening at 90%, followed by Edmonton (86%) and Calgary (84%).
