Radio remains consistently popular with an average weekly reach of 84% for Canadians A12+. Perhaps reflective of the work from home trend, in-home listening represents 52% of tuning, while out of home represents 48%. We should note that, for Canadians, 10% of radio consumption comes from AM/FM live radio streaming. Let’s forge on.
