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.

Media Companies Have A Big Problem with YouTube Music and Netflix

Those who do not think about their future can not have one. This is the synthesis of Ofcom’s report on BBC, according to which the worrying defection of young audiences is the fault of the ubiquity of new platforms that are opposed to those on the air, the inability to update themselves with changes in tastes and habits and renunciation. the exploitation of native content to the advantage of a nefarious alliance in co-productions with the on demand streaming platforms that are subtracting users.

The Ofcom  raises the alarm: the BBC is facing an unprecedented existential crisis due to its inability to reach a younger audience in the face of competition from commercial rivals and online offers YouTube Music(radio side) and Netflix (tv side).

The regulatory body, the Guardian explains in today’s article , has found that young people are increasingly turning away from the company’s TV and radio services and that the BBC is “not doing enough, fast enough” to reverse the situation and ensure that has a future audience for its existence.

Opcom’s research found that young people spend about an hour and 20 minutes a day consuming BBC content; about half the average for all age groups.

More deeply, one in eight young English does not currently consume any BBC content in a week; a worrying figure, given the current financing model of the UK radio and television company, which is based on convincing the overwhelming majority of the public to pay £ 150.50 a year.

According to the Ofcom, if part of the defections can be motivated by the “ubiquity of new technologies” (the reference is to the use of streaming on demand content on the move through smartphones and tablets, as opposed to the constraint of the stable location of television and indoor receiver or car radio for broadcasting over the air), on the other it must be said that competitors The same carriers (AM, FM, UHF, VHF), ie commercial radio stations, have done comparatively better than the BBC to retain the younger audience.

“The decline in use among young people is a concern, not only because this target is less served, but also because young people are fundamental to the future of the BBC,” reads Incom’s annual report on BBC’s performance.

The regulator also pointed out that BBC Three only reaches 8% of people in this age group every week, despite being an online channel specifically designed to attract younger viewers.

In summary, BBC is a broadcaster for old people. ” According to young people, it is too tied to conventional formats”, says the report, which censors the inertia of society despite being “aware of the challenges it faced” .

Although the informational authority of the BBC is not in dispute and the company has been praised for having ” enhanced the diversity of the people it represents on the air”, Ofcom has stigmatized in its report the position of users according to which “elderly women were often represented in certain roles while middle class individuals were overrepresented in the programs “.

Earphones’ turn from Ofcom to the radio-TV player on the need to become ” more transparent in explaining why BBC made certain strategic decisions and failed to focus on the distinctive content of the United Kingdom” and strong fears about”The growing use of co-production agreements by the BBC with global streaming companies such as Netflix to subsidize the production of large-budget films, such as the upcoming adaptation of Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman”.

“Third party financing allows the BBC to broadcast – and to the UK audience to enjoy – content that the BBC could otherwise not have been able to produce,” reads the report. “But funding is typically focused on programs with global appeal, rather than on content that specifically reflects the lives and problems of the British public. It is also uncertain whether the BBC can continue to rely on such agreements, given the growing attention of online streaming players to the production of their content, ” concluded Ofcom referring clearly to the renewed policies of Netflix.
