From a year-to-date perspective, Radio revenue for January through May 2006 when compared to January through May 2005 were:  local, down 2%; national, flat; total combined local and national, down 1%; non-spot revenue, up 6%; and total spot and non-spot down 1%.
 
To put the intermediate and long-term growth of the Radio industry into proper perspective, the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB) introduced an Ad Sales Index that equates base year 1998 to 100.  The Index works similar to the Consumer Price Index so that information can be monitored on a monthly basis.
 
The sales indexes for May 2006 were: local, 137.8; national, 137.1; total combined local and national, 137.5.  From a year-to-date perspective, the sales indexes for January through May 2006 compared to January through May 2005 were: local, 139.3; national, 144.5; total combined local and national, 140.5.
 
These monthly totals are based on the RAB Radio Revenue Index of more than 150 markets.  The accounting firm of Miller, Kaplan, Arase & Co. provides the local and national revenue data on the more than 150 markets RAB uses to calculate its Revenue Index.  Non-Spot data has been collected and audited since January 2002 and reported since September 2004.
