Arbitron Releases Philly PPM Data For May
Arbitron today released Philadelphia PPM data for the month of May.
Commenting on the results, Arbitron SVP Press and Investor Relations Thom Mocarsky said, "In a PPM world, individual station cumes are larger for all stations, since every exposure to an encoded station is automatically recorded and reported. We’ve provided the Philadelphia station cumes for April and May. These are big numbers and a big story for radio."
He continued, "Cumes are only part of the PPM story. Even in a PPM world, P1 listeners are important drivers of station ratings and an even more important part of the value of the station’s audience to advertisers. To highlight this dynamic, we are also providing the percent of a station’s AQH rating (based on weekly sample) that P1 listeners represent and the Time Spent Exposed for each station’s P1 listeners.
“Some have suggested that P1 can be seen as a measure of 'loyalty' or 'engagement.' In the case of the Philadelphia May data, you see that eight stations garner more than two-thirds of their AQH audience from P1 listeners with Contemporary Inspirational WPPZ-FM at the top of the ranker at 79 percent.
“The new PPM metric that replaces time spent listening – Average Weekly Time Exposed – also says a lot about the 'loyalty' and 'engagement' of P1 listeners. In the May 2007 Philadelphia PPM data, two stations, Smooth Jazz WJJZ-FM and Urban Adult Contemporary WDAS-FM have a time spent exposed among their P1 listeners at 10 hours or greater.
“And all formats have a positive story to tell when you look beyond the single dimension of AQH share rankers."
