of starting an internet radio station? If you have
any doubts......read on!!
There has been considerable interest in the growth
of Internet radio listening in recent years,
especially with the arrival of Internet Radio
measurement company Ando Media.
Founded in 2004, Ando Media is the leading provider
of real-time audience measurement and ads management
solutions for the internet audio market.
The total number of Average Active Sessions among
the top 20 Internet radio stations as measured by
Ando Media between November 2009 and June of 2010st
was over seven-hundred-forty-two thousand. By June
2010, that number had grown by almost 25% to
916,193, a significant growth spurt in just eight
months. The pure play stations increased from 35% of
the pie to 49%. The trend is quite revealing.
Literally all of the growth between November 2009
and June 2010 was due to the increase in listening
among those pure play Internet stations that were
measured by Ando.

Internet radio stations, are gathering momentum as
