September 8, 2011 at 11:56 AM (PT)
There were some changes in the bottom half of the Top-10 entities in TRITON DIGITAL's monthly Internet Audio Top 20 Ranker for JULY. The top three sites saw their sessions decline, as PANDORA led by a wide margin ahead of CBS RADIO and CLEAR CHANNEL, which finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
However, CUMULUS re-entered the top 10 at #9, COX RADIO rose to #7, EMF CORP. rose to #8 and ESPN RADIO fell from #7-#10.
Active Average Sessions for PANDORA fell to a little over 598,000 -- down from 611,000-plus -- in JUNE. CBS RADIO had almost 131,252 sessions (down around 9,000), CLEAR CHANNEL attracted 113,094 (also down a bit) sessions, while CITADEL rose at tad over 47,000 sessions (up a little over 1,000). Speculating ahead, once CITADEL is assimilated into CUMULUS, the combined sessions of the two would be over 63,000, up over 10,000 from JUNE.
