Switzerland: a quarter of the population sticks to FM
In Switzerland, listening to digital radio seems to be stuck at 75%. As in the fall of 2021, listening to analog radio will remain at 25 percent in the spring of 2022. The Digital Migration Group (DigMig), which oversees Switzerland’s digital transformation, reports that listening to FM has dropped from 51 to 25 percent. Since 2015, but in fact there has been no decline in the past two years. However, the number of people who have an FM-only receiver drops further to 13 percent. Another 13 percent don’t listen to the radio at all. The listening share for DAB+ increases to 41 percent and 53 percent of households currently own a DAB+.

Twitter: The podcast in spaces
It became apparent last week that Twitter is making several attempts to revive its acoustic offering, Spaces. What has been announced now may interest us. Twitter will integrate podcasts into the Spaces tab. There, one will then be able to find dedicated hubs, which will be called “stations”, and group content based on the topic. This will relate to both popular podcasts and content that is currently being streamed in Spaces Rooms or recorded. Currently, this is only published for English speaking users of iOS and Android. Whether there will also be a desktop version will depend on the feedback Twitter gets from users. (HVG)
