Before COVID-19, most listening to Tampa radio happened outside the home. Consumers were tuning-in to their favorite stations from the car on the way to their job. Then, they tuned-in when they arrived at work. They listened again during the commute back home.
Nielsen recently surveyed consumers who worked from home before and during the novel coronavirus outbreak. The results show, as of June, 66% of respondents now work from home full-time as a consequence of the pandemic.
As consumers are compelled to work from their houses and curtail their commutes, the share of at-home listening to Tampa radio has grown by 23%, according to Nielsen.
Among homebound employees, Nielsen discovered that listening to music on radio remains an important part of their working hours.
Despite the disruptions to work-life and commuting habits, 2.1 million adult consumers spend, on average, 1.5 hours per day listening to Tampa radio. This time spent with radio is negligibly different from a year ago.
Beginning in 1922 when WDAE signed-on as the first station serving Tampa Bay, radio to market their goods and services through recessions, depressions, and natural disasters. All the research indicates that AM/FM radio is as dependable now as it was then.
