More Than Just Radio

Posted by RadioJinglesVIP on May 2, 2015 at 12:30 PM Comments comments (0)

At RadioJinglesVIP.com, we always take pleasure working with radio stations no matter the size, format or market.

 

We are even more so proud to be working with the people at Red Fox Radio whose mission is not just to bringing quality radio but caring deeply for the community.

 

Here is what Red Fox Radio is all about:

 

Redfox Radio isn't like most radio stations. It cares deeply about the community in which it resides, It's residents and businesses.

 

"At the start of 2015, We aided Chatham based music store "Manny's music" after they had a break in by publicising the word about the local business and to drum up attention to put those who caused upset to justice.

 

We know what it's like to have nothing or to be at a disadvantage too, so with our annual project "TheChallenge" we aim to raise lots of money for different UK charities by staying awake for 24 hours and broadcasting a show of epic proportions. We have a lot of fun doing it, especially knowing our sleep deprivation is doing good in this world."

Pandora's Popularity Dips, Internet Radio Keeps Growing In 2013

Posted by RadioJinglesVIP on February 8, 2013 at 11:05 AM Comments comments (0)

The popularity of Pandora did not increase this year 2013.

 

However, reports have it that internet radio is still thriving, in fact, more and more listeners are tuning in at the start of the year.

 

The most hyped internet radio feature in America recorded no significant increase of listenership with 1.39 billion streams for two consecutive months.

 

The most shocking is that its active subscribers have now gone from 67 million to 65m since December of 2012.

 

This however is not the first dip in Pandora’s popularity. In June last year, the connections dropped to 1.08 billion from 1.1 billion, although it bounced to 1.16 in July of 2012.

 

Internet radio however is doing well. It is estimated that tuners will increase to 176.5 million this year from 132.6 million last year.

 

This translates to having fifty four percent of Americans listening to internet or sixty seven percent of total internet users hooked.
