About Internet Radio
Internet being reachable to different places in the world, so does Internet radio. It has expanded enormously with an estimated 13,000 stations currently available, including many traditional FM /AM simulcasting their content over the Internet. It is estimated that the number of people listening to Internet radio will grow 200% to 147.5 million by 2010.
A Little Perspective on Internet Radio
Imagine (1) Internet radio station with an averages 2000 visitors per hour, 24 hours per day, the station will be bringing in almost 1.5 MILLION visitors per month. Now if you figure that the average person listens to the radio for 1.5 hours per day (and that's regular radio - it's hard to listen to Internet radio on your morning drive) we can estimate that 32,000 unique visitors frequent the site every day. If we establish a very conservative listener ratio of 1:3 (meaning the average listener listens for 1.5 hours over 3 days - ie, most don't listen on the weekends or every single day, some do, some only listen once or twice per week, nobody listens 24 hours per day), that gives you around 96,000 regular listeners per a major internet radio station times the figure with like 2000 major internet radio stations out of the 13,000 internet stations confirmed and currently available, including many traditional FM /AM simulcasting their content over the Internet.
