So says iHeartMedia, the former Clear Channel, which renamed itself Tuesday.
The mobile nature of radio is a simple concept but here we see the big media company trying to remind and reeducate the ad market about the inherent reach of AM/FM radio. In a factsheet, the company provided a graphic (see below) showing out-of-home vs. in-home media consumption.
The company also describes itself as the number one media company in the United States as measured by monthly reach.
