A new study from Arbitron and Edison Research demonstrates that one third of all Americans aged 12 and older now listen to all forms of online radio on a weekly basis. Further, weekly online radio listeners report listening for an average of 11 hours 56 minutes per week, up by more than two hours over last year’s listening levels (9 hours 46 minutes in 2012), and nearly double that reported in 2008 (6 hours 13 minutes).

At the same time, the RADAR national network ratings show that AM/FM Radio has grown to 243 million weekly listeners and Time Spent Listening has remained approximately two hours a day.
