Listener Intelligence Overview


Listener Intelligence distills NextRadio usage into insights on listening and listeners for your station, your market and about your competition. 

If you are looking for supplemental information to vet against other sources or you operate in a world where audience measurement is slow or difficult to come by, Listener Intelligence is a great resource.

The long term vision for Listener Intelligence is to create a unified platform for measuring Radio consumption by adding usage data from other sources (station-branded apps, the connected car, etc.) in order to provide you with a comprehensive view of the consumer and their behaviors.

Below is an overview of each section of Listener Intelligence.  If you have questions about the information in the portal, email us at or call us at 317-707-4303.

Station Analytics: Overview

Think of this as your Listener Intelligence home page, a dashboard that includes your station's NextRadio listening metrics, a map of listener home locations, a list of the most densely populated listener zips (hot zips), a breakout of daypart listening and your top demographics.

Since NextRadio enables listening via FM and streaming, you can summarize results by "delivery type": All (FM + streaming), Broadcast (FM listening only) or Streaming (streaming listening only).

Start by selecting a delivery type, time span, market and station from the drop down menu - then click "Apply."
