idobi Radio, an independent modern rock broadcaster, takes on established powerhouses to land at #11 on Webcast Metrics ® ranking of top internet radio stations
WASHINGTON, DC, January 7, 2013 – idobi Radio (https://idobi.com/) lands at the #11 spot in Triton Digital’s Webcast Metrics ® Top 20 Ranker, “a listing of the top-performing Internet audio stations,” making idobi the most listened-to online modern rock outlet in the world. (http://ido.bi/triton201211)
idobi Radio, independently owned and operated since 1999, has been on the cutting edge of modern rock music and programming since its inception. When terrestrial broadcasters became increasingly wrapped up in consolidation efforts, idobi Radio focused on music and programming. idobi Radio’s TSL (Time Spent Listening) highlights the strength of that decision.
The idobi Radio audience is passionate about the music and shows they love to listen to. idobi has become a lifestyle with a dedicated audience, who ranks far above Clear Channel, Entercom, Emmis, and other traditional broadcasters (all desperately trying to enter the digital space). Despite major competition, idobi Radio is #1 for TSL in the entire world. This is credited to idobi Radio’s forward-thinking music selection and original programming.
Programs like the hugely successful Man of the Hour (hosted by Simple Plan’s SÃ©bastien Lefebvre and Montreal’s “Ã‡a commence bien” social journalist Patrick Langlois), First Person with Josh Madden, The Gunz Show, Eddie Jason & Chris, and Rock The Walls provide the type of entertainment listeners crave but terrestrial stations no longer serve.
idobi Radio proves great original programming, allowing creativity to rule, and forecasting hit music develops a brand listeners are passionate about and love to listen to. A model of success that is no longer found on the FM dial. idobi picked up this strategy, ran with it, and shows no signs of stopping. idobi Radio is the future of broadcasting.
