Westwood One, America’s largest radio network, is rolling out NextRadio as the first interactive audience measurement tool for over-the-air FM radio advertising campaigns.

AM/FM radio can enhance and grow digital marketing efforts. Here’s a summary of three different case studies illustrating the impact radio creates for digital including increased website interest and visitation and significant sales conversion.
Westwood One is the first radio company to launch a data management platform with the Nielsen Marketing Cloud. For the first time in the history of radio, over the air AM/FM radio listening is now directly connected with consumer purchase data.
