ON-AIR PERSONALITIES BOOST RESULTS
The client wanted to understand the value of utilizing on-air influencers in local markets so the study also looked at performance by listeners likely exposed to those personality-voiced spots. After the campaign, listeners to stations featuring personality-voiced spots saw larger increases in key metrics compared to non-listeners of those stations. Personality-voiced spots were able to break through and resonate with listeners, leading to higher levels of awareness and consideration.
