Radio
Czech Republic

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 Czech Republic

In many countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), private radios started to emerge after the 1990s, significantly later than in the rest of Europe, and this prevented radio from establishing itself as a resilient media. Further radio public funding has proved to be challenging, while it represents an important pillar for this industry in Europe. Besides, the political context in some countries has often forced initial investors to sell their assets to local or regional groups. This is the case in the Czech Republic, where the public broadcaster Cesky Rozhlas Radio receives limited public funding, and where the French group Lagardère sold its radio to the local and regional media group Czech Media Invest. Furthermore, the Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB/DAB+) network is spreading in the Czech Republic, resulting in a DAB/DAB+ population coverage that stands at 85%. It is expected to reach 95% at the end of 2020 following the launch of new DAB+ transmitters. Besides, digital radio advertising revenues, which combine both website and podcast revenues, are slowly becoming more important in the total revenues of radio group. Digital radio revenues have reached 2.8% of the total radio advertising revenues in the Czech Republic in 2020.
