Today In Communication History

On this date in 1971, a video of Ike & Tina Turner performing “Proud Mary” was aired on ‘American Bandstand’.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new homes with meters that record the channel being watched — but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.

WRAL in Raleigh, NC Switches From CBS To NBC
After a 30-year partnership with CBS, WRAL plans to change its network affiliation at the end of February. WRAL will become an NBC affiliate on Feb. 29. “We’ve been a CBS affiliate for more than 30 years. We’ve enjoyed a strong relationship with CBS News over the years,” WRAL-TV Vice President and General Manager Steve Hammel said in a statement. “Change brings opportunity. I have great confidence in our team to establish WRAL-TV as a dominant NBC affiliate.” WRAL-TV first went on the air in 1956 as an NBC affiliate. The station signed on with the up-and-coming ABC Network in 1962. That relationship lasted until 1985, when the station became an affiliate of the CBS Television Network. In 2015, WRAL-TV was the No. 1 CBS affiliate sign on to sign off in the top 25 markets.

Mobile News
What Prompts Smartphone Users to Download Apps & Why Do They Delete Them?
Roughly one-third of smartphone users replace apps on their device at least a few times a week, and around half (52%) do so at least once a month, according to a new report from Yahoo. The report separately indicates that most applications have been deleted by the 3 month mark post-download if they’re not being used, while almost one-third are deleted in 1 week or less. The survey was fielded among 2,590 smartphone users aged 13-64 in the US. Some 29% of the respondents reported being smartphone dominant (users who spend most of their time on their smartphones, and are using them to replace their PCs), with the remainder expecting to be smartphone dominant in the future.
On average, apps lie dormant for 12 weeks prior to being deleted, per the results, with content apps being the quickest to churn (11 weeks) and travel being among those taking slightly longer (13 weeks). The top reason given for deleting an app is:
► non-use (stopping using the app; 55%), though many also pointed to having
► found a better or more useful app (53%),
► having become bored of the app (52%),
► the presence of too many ads (46%) and
► lack of storage or memory (45%).
That last point is interesting in light of other data in the study suggesting that storage concerns play a large role as an app deletion trigger. And in a recently-released survey from Quixey, mobile device owners said that the storage space taken up is what they like the least about apps.

The study comments that “app replacement is what is driving app downloads,” and data from the report certainly suggests that replacement is one of the triggers behind downloads. Indeed, 6 in 10 respondents said that frustration or dissatisfaction with the current version of an app is a general prompt for downloading a new app. However, that was outweighed by numerous other prompts, including:
► Looking for something new/bored – 80%;
► Personal recommendation – 74%;
► Kids – 70%;
► Mobile browser not being sufficient – 68%; and
► Needing an app to make the shopping experience better – 65%.
It’s notable that personal recommendations rank highly, as previous research from Google and Ipsos has indicated that word-of-mouth is a key driver of smartphone app discovery and a leading reason why users download apps. Interestingly, while ads fell slightly further down the list of prompts, a slight majority of respondents to the Yahoo survey reported that ads prompt them to download apps. Similarly, around half said that online ads would restart their usage of a dormant app, a figure close to the 52% who said that a recommendation from family, friends or colleagues would do the same.

Meanwhile, another trigger for downloads is the app store, where respondents said they’re as likely to conduct a broad search for a category as they are to go directly to the app they’re looking for. Not surprisingly, reviews and ratings are important factors when users search within the app store, and negative reviews emerged as the leading reason given for not installing an app on a smartphone. The next-most common reason for not installing an app? Not having enough storage on the phone.

Marketing Research
Migrating Millennials Will Change The Retail Landscape
By the year 2020, the retail and manufacturer landscape will undoubtedly change. But despite the myriad ways trends could shift, one thing will become increasingly salient for retailers: They need to pay attention to Millennials. That is because not only does this generation now account for about one-quarter of the U.S. population, its buying power will grow as these consumers get older. So as members of this group mature into a main consumer group, retailers and manufacturers alike will need to account for their needs, buying preferences, changing geographic locations and increasing spending power. Nielsen projects that U.S. consumer spending will hit $5.7 billion by 2020 in retail and on-premise eating and drinking locations. That’s a figure retailers and manufacturers should be focused on if they’re interested in claiming a piece of that growth. And the first step is knowing where to find it – and that means finding Millennials.

When it comes to tracking Millennials down, many seem poised to make a move in the near term. In fact, only 25% of Millennial respondents to a 2015 Nielsen survey said they plan to live in the same area they live in now over the next five years. That means 75% of up-and-coming spenders plan to relocate, mainly to large cities and college towns. As Millennials age, like previous generations, they’ll seek refuge in the suburbs with homes of their own. The Demand Institute’s “Tale of 2,000 Cities” study forecasts home prices in the large metropolitan areas could increase up to 33% above 2012 prices. This increase in home value will likely be driven by Millennials as they seek to put down roots.

To market to these rapidly growing cities, retailers and manufacturers will also need to focus on future food consumption habits. For example, it may seem like restaurants have cornered the out-of-home food game, but grocery stores are already beginning to respond to this trend with their own offering, the “grocerant.” Offering more than just your typical hot and salad bar, grocerants span the dining gambit, featuring everything from prepared meals to eat-on-the-go to in-store dining with a particular ethnic food slant. According to the Food Marketing Institute’s 2015 Grocery Shopper Trend Study, 34% of survey respondents find retail grab-and-go even easier than going to a restaurant.

Millennials will be on the move by 2020, both with their home location and their busy schedules. In order for retailers and manufactures to capture the rise of Gen Y, they’ll need to look for solutions that satisfy their need for convenience and locality.

By the way, 64% of millennials planned to see the new ‘Star War’s’ movie. That is above the 59% of U.S. movie watchers who planned to see the new Star War’s movie.

Half of Americans Can’t Afford A Major Purchase Right Now
Some 48% of American adults surveyed throughout 2015 believe they would be unable to right now make a major purchase, such as a car, appliance or furniture, or pay for a significant home repair if they needed to. That’s according to a Gallup analysis of daily tracking poll data, which finds that the threshold household income level for being able to afford a major purchase is around $48,000. Even so, 7 in 10 adults say they have enough money to buy the things they need, and that includes almost half (49%) of those in households with income of $12-24k. Indeed, almost 6 in 10 adults in the $24-36k income band say they have enough money to buy the things they need. Finally, a majority (60%) of adults surveyed during the year said they are cutting back on how much money they spend each week. That figures includes a majority of respondents in all income bands up to $120k per year, although a sizable 37% of those with $240k or more in household income also report cutting back on their weekly spending.

US Media Universe Across Devices 2016
Portrait of young happy woman sharing her photo and video files
Traditional TV (live + DVR/time-shifted TV) and AM/FM radio continue to have the widest monthly reach of any media among Americans, reports Nielsen in its latest look at the media universe. While the timing of the report doesn’t provide for direct year-over-year comparisons to last year’s installment, there are some trends to be found from the latest release.

TV Screen
A comparison of this latest report’s data with the previous edition indicates that the monthly traditional TV audience of 282 million (during Q3 2015) is down from 285 million during Q4 2014. Also on the TV screen, the latest figures show that, during that time period:

⦿ The number of Americans viewing DVR/time-shifted TV remained steady at 181 million;
⦿ The number using a DVD or Blu-Ray player dropped by 17 million to 125 million;
⦿ The number using a game console declined by 7 million, to 90 million; but
⦿ The number using a multimedia device surged by 23 million, to 66 million (a more than 50% gain).

AM/FM Radio
While research shows that online radio’s reach continues to grow, AM/FM radio‘s audience remains largely steady, averaging 259 million monthly for the year-long period ending in mid-June 2015, compared to 258 million for the year-long period ending in mid-September 2014.

Smartphones & Computers
The latest figures show a narrowing of the gap in internet access on PCs versus smartphones:
⦿ During Q3 2015, 182 million used the internet on a PC on at least a monthly basis, down from 198 million during Q4 2014; while
⦿ 176 million used apps or the web on a smartphone, up from 164 million.
As such, the audience gap between PC and smartphone internet use narrowed from 34 million in Q4 2014 to just 6 million in Q3 2015.

The shift from PCs to smartphones is evident in the video viewing audience, too. Indeed, Nielsen’s figures show that more Americans now watch video on a smartphone than do so on a PC. Specifically, in Q3 2015:
⦿ 133 million Americans watched video on a smartphone on at least a monthly basis, up 11 million from Q4 2014; while
⦿ 127 million watched video on a PC, down 19 million from Q4 2014.

Social Media
This year’s social media figures combine app and mobile web use (where they were separated last year), such that direct comparisons can’t be made to last year’s report. Nevertheless, the latest figures show that social media has a larger monthly audience on smartphones than on PCs:
⦿ 169 million accessed social media via app or web on a smartphone during Q3 2015; versus
⦿ 115 million who accessed social media on a PC (down 18 million from Q4 2014).

ESPN Continues Its Slide
ESPN is currently in 91.4 million television homes, according to a report in Sports Business Journal, a loss of 1.5 million since July (92.9M), three million since February (94.4M), and nearly nine million since July 2011.
Overall, cable distribution is down to 99.6 million homes, “the first time in more than seven years (since August 2008) that the pay-TV industry failed to eclipse the 100 million home mark.”
