When It Comes to Advertising Mobile Ads Are King and Radio Stations Are Falling Behind

“The mobile sector, with its huge amount of data and the growing public, is sucking up the entire advertising industry . ”

This is Davis Hebert, an analyst with the US financial services multinational Wells Fargo, during his presentation at Pillsbury Broadcast Finance breakfast at The Radio Show 2018 (an event held in Orlando last week, which has been investigating issues related to the financial status of radio industry and in which industry leaders and financial experts participate).

In the debate on economic data related to the trend of radio reported by a Radio Ink article of 09/27/2018, Hebert has launched a clear message: despite the economy is booming, the radio is receding. The heavy debt collected by the two largest owners of US radio groups , iHeart Radio ( now back in line with the financial crisis that went through it ) and Cumulus, which would have dampened the interest of investors in all the radio sector.

The result is that the digital market, driven by the mobile sector, is taking share and is destined to become the first global media category thanks mainly to the use of Search, Social and Video by users, whose consumption is moving towards the digital world.

In this scenario, according to Hebert, this year the sale of advertising space on the web (and especially mobile advertising ) is expected to increase by almost 40% and the biggest beneficiaries of these revenues will be the two global media dealerships dominating Search and Social, that is Google and Facebook; with regard to radio, on the other hand, a decrease of 2% is expected.

Despite this, a rise for the radio sector should come from the next US election campaign: Magna Global , intelligence division of IPG Mediabrands, would have predicted this political event at 2.9 billion dollars.”Most of these revenues will go to local TV, but the radio could get 5-7% of this revenue,” says Hebert.

For the radio, this could be an opportunity for regrowth, given the difficult period that is going through. “2018 is an important transition year for the radio industry,” says Wells Fargo, an analyst who identifies four rapidly expanding sectors in the world market where radio could invest to win back the public and establish itself as the main medium for audio listening: mobile streaming , podcasting , smart speakers and big data.

Barangay LS 97.1 Live Audio Streaming on YouTube

DWLS FM Barangay LS 97.1 live audio streaming has been the most requested by listeners and fans from overall the world.

Especially from OFW listeners, they have been asking and looking for reliable internet streaming of the station.

It used to be that only DZBB is the only GMA radio station streaming on the web. But now, DWLS finally has their own webcast.

To tune, visit http://www.gmanetwork.com/radio and there you will have an option to listen to DZBB AM or DWLS Barangay LS 97.1.

Opening the link will point to a popup window so make sure you web browser allows popups.

Then it will display an embedded audio player using YouTube. This means DWLS is streaming their radio broadcast using YouTube.

You cannot find though the live streaming video if you search it on YouTube website or YouTube app that is because the video is unlisted.

Now there are many benefits to streaming your radio station’s broadcast to Youtube, first it is free, reliable and the reach is unbelievably wide.

There is also this opportunity to monetize the streaming using ads or superchats and memberships given that their streaming video is uploaded by their verified GMA Network channel account.

There are however downsides too. If you don’t like other websites embedding your video that can be tricky although you turn off the embed option, that means your listeners can only listen or watch to your streaming video from the YouTube website or YouTube app.

Now that is a double edged sword for GMA because they want to embed their video onto their own webpage, disabling the embedding option means they cannot embed their video onto their own website, which by the way is also monetized by Adsense.

Another downside that the Content ID or Copyright matching on YouTube is aggressive. Even with a verified and known major YouTube channel owner like GMA Network they are still not spared from the copyright strikes or Content ID matches on YouTube. This means anytime, their streaming video can be taken down which is bad for listeners.

Unless of course they have a special arrangement with YouTube they will be spared from that.

The good news is that the listeners are the winners, finally they can listen to their favorite radio shows on DWLS Barangay LS 97.1.

It is clear though if this streaming capability is available to listeners outside the Philippines.
