About the data: RADAR (Radio’s All Dimension Audience Research) measures network commercial audiences by merging radio listening information with clearance data for broadcasts and commercial exposures. That is, quarter-hours of radio usage as reported by respondents are matched with program and commercial clearances provided by the radio networks for each station carrying the programming. The 57 measured networks are operated by ABC Radio Networks, American Urban Radio Networks, Crystal Media Networks, Dial Global Inc., Jones MediaAmerica Inc., Premiere Radio Networks and Westwood One Radio Networks.
