The time for audio is NOW
Today, Americans listen to more than 4 hours of streaming audio EVERY DAY. Using voice for search, communicating with smart speakers, listening to podcasts, and enjoying streaming music services is now mainstream. We are becoming an audio-first society. Audio advertising is the sound wave of the future, providing listeners, publishers, and advertisers with new ways to engage with one another in a continuous cycle of personalization and innovation. It’s an exciting and historic time in audio and we are in awe of the industry’s growth and development each and every day. It’s from this lens that we not only appreciate this award, but see it as a springboard to the future possibilities.
