eMarketer: How quickly will programmatic take hold in the radio space?

 

Haley: By this time next year there will be multiple broadcasters trading inventory programmatically on a spot basis. What volume will they be trading? I don’t know yet. There’s certainly interest on the buy side and an air of inevitability on about programmatic from the broadcaster side.

 

When all of this can be done on an exchange, in a seamless, transparent way, that changes the dynamics. It can help us to see real acceleration across many markets and outlets.
