Inside Radio ran an article today on the Advertising Week panel organized by XAPPmedia. The article concludes that while Internet radio has expanded quickly there is still more room for growth and that presents big opportunities for advertisers.

XAPPmedia CEO Pat Higbie shares his Internet radio predictions for 2014 with MediaPost in an article published today. He predicts a lot of changes and growth when it comes to advertising in internet radio.
As introduced by Rob Woodbridge of Untether.tv: “Radio has always been one of the things that has been consistently ripe for mobile disruption on two fronts. The first is broadcast which is being handled by the likes of RDIO, Spotify, Pandora, Songza, iTunes Radio and now Amazon among many many others. All-told there are roughly 140 million Internet radio listeners that share their time across the new broadcasters. Not a huge global industry, but enough to warrant a rethink of the business and engagement models – which is the second piece ripe for a rethink. This is where XAPPmedia comes in.”
