STERN-VERTISING: The Pros and Cons of advertising on Howard Stern’s radio show.

Part of the reason Stern gets away with it all is Stern's brutal honesty. He’s direct and candid, rarely editing subject matter or choice of language. That, and the fact that the show just happens to be funny. Stern is an extraordinary interviewer, with a rapid-fire style of questioning that keeps guests off balance which invariably unearths a very private, usually fascinating side to the guest on the hot seat.

Who’s Listening to Radio?

Radio – and all forms of audio entertainment – touch our lives daily in the most intimate of ways. From the clock radio that awakens us, to the music we listen to as we prepare our day, to the audio entertainment we consume on our daily commute to the online radio station that keeps us company at work, radio and audio are right there with us.

Approaching A Campaign Test

Radio results need to be evaluated over a period of time as there is no crystal ball to predict listener behavior. You see, people are doing other things when they listen to radio. Many will hear an ad, jot down the number and then call on days and times that will give a false read if we try and attribute calls to the exact days and times calls are received.
