Nielsen’s plan to implement continuous measurement in 46 diary markets was first announced early in 2019, with details on the rollout previewed during a Country Radio Seminar (CRS) session in February, hosted by Nielsen VP/Audience Insights Jon Miller. CRS promised a follow-up once data began arriving, which occurred in August, reflecting July results. In our 5th episode of CRS360, we will once again feature Miller to share what these results have revealed so far. He’ll be joined by moderator Tom Baldrica, and programming consultant Joel Raab, whose clients include stations in these newly measured markets.

In this installment of CRS360, we’ll examine the unique relationship between Country radio, its listeners, and their community, and how Country radio is positioned to be something more in podcasting than just repurposed broadcast content. Edison Research SVP and CRS veteran Tom Webster will walk attendees through the latest data and talk about Country’s potential to “leave deeper footprints” with podcasts.
