Beat Digital Listening 2020

2020 saw Beat listeners swap their stereos for smart speakers as disrupted routines and a series of innovative digital-awareness campaigns influenced radio consumption.

Total Listening Hours on Beat’s digital streams were up 62% year on year, while Active Listening Sessions grew by an impressive 48%. The takeaway number, however, was Smart Speaker Listening Hours which skyrocketed by 569% over 2019’s total listening figure.

Beat’s digital audience had been demonstrating impressive growth in recent years, particularly since the launch of the regional radio station’s digital-only channel Noughty Beats.

Covid-19 disrupted how Beat followers consumed radio as listeners swapped the morning commute for remote working. Car stereos were replaced by smartphones and smartspeakers as news-hungry listeners switched-on from home for reliable, trusted, and vital information that entertained at a time when we needed it most. 

Beat’s digital offerings sustained this growth trend throughout the latter half of 2020, culminating in an innovative festive Smart Speaker campaign on air and online in which the regional radio station playfully advised listeners on “What not to say to your smart speaker!” 

Commenting on Beat’s digital listening explosion, Head of Station Sound, Niall Power said: “Whilst Beat has dominated FM listening across the South East for almost eighteen years, 2020 was the year we saw a big shift to digital listening as lifestyles changed. Research shows that people consume more audio after they purchase a smart speaker – and we’re certainly seeing that on our Beat channels with smart speaker listening now overtaking both mobile and desktop listening for the first time.

“We’re proud to offer two very distinct services to our listeners digitally – the full service Beat 102-103 and the more music-driven Noughty Beats.”

WLR Christmas Appeal LiveViewAuction 1This year’s WLR’s Christmas Appeal finished on Tuesday Dec 22nd and raised over €90,000.

The Money raised will go directly to the SVP in Waterford so they can continue to help the people of Waterford City and County. The services provided not only include financial assistance for food, bills, rent, fuel, and electricity where necessary, but also, support for people in making a better life for themselves and their families.

Events this year were difficult due to restrictions, but several virtual events took place including the ‘Wear Red Day’, the annual Santa run, a virtual swim, 12-dogs of Christmas, the Roy Collins and Friends Santa experience at Copper Coast Mini-Farm, the Farm Auction which raised over €8,700, surfing lessons, text donations, school fundraisers and the coffee morning supported by Liberty Blue, Blue Butterfly, Cass and Co, Barista Bay Coffee, The Lemon Tree and Molly’s.

One of the highlights for the appeal this year was the Mark White Fitness Rowathon & Cycling Challenge in Tramore. Fundraising from this event alone stands at over €15,000.

Michael Byrne, WLR Programme Director said: “As a local radio station serving Waterford city and county, we were, once again, delighted to raise funds which are then distributed within our community by the Society of St Vincent de Paul. A big thanks once again to our listeners and sponsors who always come out in support of the appeal every year. A big thank you to all the people who went out of their way to help us and to the staff in WLR and the volunteers who helped with the appeal this year. Without them this wouldn’t have been achieved”

WLR was also supported by several local companies who generously assisted in donating money for the St. Vincent De Paul.
