Adspend Up Again for US Radio

News, 08 October 2002

US radio adspend continued its upward trend in August, according to new figures from the Radio Advertising Bureau.

Overall revenues rose 5% for the month, following a 9% jump in July. National sales led the increase, posting a 9% rise in August, with local expenditure climbing 4%.

In the year to date, radio adspend is up 3%, though this is expected to improve with a strong performance in the final months of 2002. The RAB predicts a double-digit surge for the fourth quarter.
