Aug 30, 2019 7:21:00 AM / by Ryan Beasley

Technology is changing the way people in Fayetteville consume media. This includes streaming audio platforms like Pandora and Spotify or the ability to watch Netflix on a smartphone.

"You wouldn’t know it from all the media coverage focused on streaming video and streaming music," said media expert Doug Schoen in Forbes Magazine, "but recent Nielsen data shows radio actually has the most reach among American media consumers." 

Last week, for instance, significantly more local consumers tuned-in to a Fayetteville radio station than watched local TV, read a local newspaper, or logged-on to a streaming audio site like Pandora and Spotify.
