Over the past 50 years radio and its audiences have changed beyond recognition, and in that time we have been at the forefront of measuring the medium to provide the currency for this dynamic industry. Whether public or commercial radio stations, advertisers or their agencies, what hasn't changed in half a century is the need for robust, reliable and gold standard audience metrics to support advertising.
 
We are true pioneers of radio measurement, providing mobile metering technologies that capture listening behavior in and outside the home, as well as advanced hybrid methodologies and the integration of streaming audio.
