In the fall, when we did our last semi-annual PubMetrics presentation, the news about public radio live streaming wasn't great. After years of steady growth, we saw streaming cume and total listening hours level off.
2016 looks very different. Total listening hours are growing again, up 14% year on year for Q1 when we look at a broad range of 240 station streams. Cume is up 8%. More people are listening, and listening time per session also ticked up in Q1.
