And the article, you frikking liar, says "since 1998."  Listening levels
are, currently, at levels as high as in the period from Arbitron's first
radio survey in 1965 well into the 80's, when changes in methodology aimed
at better measuring minorities and young males, adjusted the levels of
listening.

"FOLLOW-UP EDISON MEDIA RESEARCH STUDY ON 12-24 RADIO LISTENING SHOWS
SHARP DECREASES IN TSL AND USAGE"

A new study by Edison Media Research shows sharp declines in Time
Spent Listening (TSL), Persons Using Radio (PUR) and most importantly
attitudes about radio among the 12-to-24-age group, the listeners who
represent both terrestrial radio's future and its greatest challenge.

"Six years ago, we presented 'Radio's Future: Today's 12-24 Year
Olds,'" noted Edison President Larry Rosin. "That report, the first
publicly-available study of 12-24 radio listening, urged broadcasters
to take more aggressive steps to fight young-end erosion and cultivate
new users. Now, with iPods, podcasting and Internet radio, today's
12-24 listeners have even more alternatives to terrestrial radio. It
is vital for broadcasters to study this newly-updated data and take
action."

The new study will be published in installments beginning Monday,
Sept. 18 on The Infinite Dial, Edison Media Research's daily blog
covering the future of audio entertainment.

Among the findings of the new study:

TSL among 12-to-17-year-olds is down 22% since 1993. Weekly TSL at
that time was 65 quarter-hours. By 2000, it had fallen below 60; it is
now 51 quarter-hours per week.

While much recent attention has been focused on ***s who may not be
learning to use radio at all, 18-to-24 TSL has declined by an even
larger percentage (24%). TSL in 1993 was 95 quarter-hours per week; it
is now 72 quarter-hours. Listening 12-24 is falling significantly
faster than among those 25-plus.

While broadcasters often point to an increase in the raw number of
Persons Using Radio to offset any concern about a decline in TSL, that
number has finally flattened - counteracted by the significant
increase in the number of people who now report no listening to radio
at all. In fact, more than 11% of boys 12-17 now report no weekly
radio listening at all.

The decline in 12-24 listening dates back to the early 90s -- a time
when few broadcasters were willing to target listeners under 24. While
broadcasters showed a renewed interest in younger targeted formats in
the mid-to-late 90s, recent years have seen a renewed emphasis on gold-
based 25-plus formats and a graying of the programming talent pool.

Perhaps of most concern, tracking of questions on attitudes about
radio among this crucial group trend down as well. Fewer young people
expect radio to be an important part of their future lives.

Your methods are unsound.

   There is, now, a question about the accuracy of Arbitron's data,
using PPM, as well. And Radio is PISSED.

   As much as IBOCcrock has a clearly asserted agenda, and is not
interested in the opposing views, he HAS exposed that there are serious
problems developing for Radio that will affect radios future.

   He has also exposed the shills for who they are, and underscored the
questionable veracity of their assertions.

   Today...from AllAccess.com:

Major Broadcasters Send Arbitron An Ultimatum

ALL ACCESS has obtained a copy of a letter sent to ARBITRON, and signed
by CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO, CUMULUS MEDIA, COX RADIO and RADIO ONE INC. In
it, the companies urge ARBITRON to address several issues that have been
highlighted in NET NEWS.

Here's the text of that letter:

November 14, 2007
Mr. Steve Morris
Mr. Pierre Bouvard
Mr. Owen Charlebois
The Arbitron Company
142 West 57th Street
New York, NY 10019

Gentlemen,

It is with the utmost urgency and objection that we, your customers,
send you this letter.

All of us have been vocal supporters of the concept of electronic
measurement in radio for several years, and we remain committed to the
need for accurate, high quality electronic ratings as a way to program
and sell our stations. As of this writing, the PPM system has been
implemented in two markets for several months, with one month of
information available in New York. To date, PPM has not provided
accurate or reliable data for all demographic groups.

We are calling on you to take immediate action to resolve this.

The most immediate issue is sample size, especially with regard to 18-34
year olds and ethnic groups. The situation is clear: To secure a
legitimate representation of listener activity, the number of people
participating in the PPM survey must be increased.

Your recent proposal to lower the number of market-level respondents
needed to issue a valid report for a specific demographic is both
specious and dangerous. This proposal could result in some stations
doing business based on the activity of as few as a single -- one --
listener. Your own researchers have concluded that such a sample size
has a greater range of error than the size of the estimate.

There are many ethical and sound business choices that can be made by
Arbitron here. One is to eliminate the 6-11 portion of the sample and
reallocate those meters to participants in other demographics based on a
12+ population.

Under any circumstance, we expect guaranteed in-tab delivery in the
18-54 age group for all age cells and across all ethnic groups,
including Hispanics and African Americans.

Please be aware that this is a critical and immediate issue for your
customers undersigned and we are expecting an action plan to correct
these matters within 30 days.

Urgently,

Clear Channel Radio -- Cumulus Media -- Cox Radio -- Radio One Inc.

When contacted by ALL ACCESS, ARBITRON had "no comment at this time."
