BlogPageWelcome to my blog -- Grace's Rantings

I have made a study of human communication -- interpersonal as well as mass media.  I am intrigued by tremendous changes in human interaction in recent years.  The computer, Internet, smart phones and social media have dramatically changed the way we interact with each other.  Human discourse hasn't changed, but the mediums by which we communicate have..."and that has made all the difference".

 

Please share your thoughts and join in the discussion. I welcome your input and comments!

 

Radio is Everywhere

If you know me, or have been following this blog, you know I am a proponent of radio.  I've written on the reported demise of radio and the strength of radio.

I recently came upon some statistics from Nielsen's Audio today report from February 2014.  It seems that:

  • Over 92% of all persons age 12+ in the US, listen to radio each week -- over 242 million people.
  • Radio listeners, listen for more than 2 1/2 hours every day.
  • The majority of radio listeners (over 67%) are employed full time, and the majority of listening is away from home.
  • 65.2 million Millenials (90%) listen to radio each week.

What are your thoughts and experiences with radio?  When do you listen?  What do you listen to?
