Radio
Canada

Although being one of the oldest media, radio continues to experience a positive momentum in many countries, and is showing resilience despite the surge of online. Radio, which is a predominantly a live linear broadcast flow of curated music and speech, also represents an important part of the growing audio market, which comprises on-demand music streaming services (such as Spotify, Apple Music or Deezer), podcasts and audiobooks. Innovations in audio, such as personalized digital audio advertising, the rise of voice AI assistants like Alexa, Siri or Google Home are providing opportunities for new entrants as well as incumbent radio networks. Historically, the radio industry has developed differently in all regions of the world. In the USA and Latin America, radio is essentially commercial. In Europe, public radio broadcasters capture in most countries the lion’s share of available resources and audience. Until today, streaming audio and radio have evolved in parallele worlds, but the same trend already observed in the TV industry, coping with the SVOD emergence, could also disrupt the radio industry, as shown through the example of Spotify, which added radio news in music playlists, as well as a large choice of podcasts and shows.

The radio market in Canada

The Canadian radio industry has faced a slight decrease in term of advertising revenues over the last decade. It has important resources with a radio advertising market of CAN$ 1.5 billion (or $1.1 billion). Key players are Corus Radio, BCE radio, Rogers Radio, Cogeco Radio and New Cap Radio. Most of these groups are also active in telecom, pay and free TV, as well as OOH (out-of-home). Besides, CBC is the public radio group. The COVID-19 crisis already had a significant impact, mostly due to shutdowns leading to a decline in advertising spending from retailers. Furthermore, digital radio advertising revenues, which combine both website and podcast revenues, have become more and more important in the total revenues of radio groups in recent years. Digital radio revenues have reached 7.5% of the total radio advertising revenues in Canada in 2020.
