Radio Insights

Radio Insights (formerly AudienScope) is a national online survey of behaviour, providing context and additional perspective to the Australian radio ratings. The research is released quarterly and involves 5,000 respondents per year.

While the radio ratings provide data on "who" is listening to "what", Radio Insights looks at the reasons "why" by delving deeper into listening behaviour.
