One provider for regional surveys

CRA is moving down a path of having one survey provider for Metro markets being GfK and from 2016, a single provider for all regional markets.

CRA have called for tenders for a single radio survey provider from 2016 and they are also seeking interest from software providers to create a Gold Standard, to take regional radio surveys into the next phase of development.

The regional research tender will cover all markets outside the GfK contract markets of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and the major regional cites of the Gold Coast, Canberra and Newcastle. The winning survey tender will be the new CRA Regional Radio Audience Measurement provider.

“Currently one of four approved regional ratings survey providers can undertake audience measurement surveys in conjunction with other commercial and public broadcasters in their licence area. The introduction of one official provider following the tender will maintain consistency across markets,”said Joan Warner, chief executive officer, Commercial Radio Australia.

How do they keep themselves relevant now a few years on since they first took on drive?How do they prep for the show and is being number one Hamish & Andy’s focus? Is there pressure? “How could there be, when you are placed in a situation where you get to chat to your best mate every afternoon, have stupid ideas … and have enough money to actually get to realise them?” And is TV still on their radar?
