Did you know that, according to Statistic Brain, nearly half, or up to 44%, of Americans dine out once a week, and 50 million Americans eat at restaurants every day? Picking a restaurant, or making healthy choices at home, can be difficult. What many Americans do not realize is that traditional media, like radio, offers food-related advice, suggestions, and personal experience. Why are Americans tuning into food talk radio and raw food talk for everything dining and diet-related?
Radio is Here to Stay
Ninety-five percent of Americans and Canadians listen to the radio at least once per week. Contrary to claims that radio is dead or dying, radio remains one of North Americans go-to sources for music, relaxation, entertainment, and news. Radio is, in fact, evolving and adapting to modern listeners’ needs. Today, listeners can tune in online, or sometimes even stream their favorite stations through cars, TVs, and smartphones. More than three-quarters, or 76%, of online listeners change stations throughout the day, according to First Digital Audio Advertising Research. Enjoy the same freedom and wealth of choices, or take comfort in sport talk radio and sports talk shows. (In a Jacobs Media survey, 80% of Americans and Canadians admitted that they listened to radio for company.) With all of this in mind, why listen to food talk radio?
Experts Help You Make Tough Decisions
More than one-third of all Americans are obese, and that means that food is a hot topic right now. Where are some of the best places to eat? How many restaurants offer healthy menus? What are some of the best ways to eat healthy, and lose weight? Food talk radio strives to answer all of these questions, and it fills you in on some lesser known facts, too. Betty Crocker, for example, is fictitious, or a General Mills advertising scheme dating back to 1920. Although generally avoided by the healthier crowd, the increasing number of drive-thrus in 1990 inspired car manufacturers to start adding built-in cup holders. Learn about advertising, diets, and more, by tuning into food talk radio.
Radio is not going anywhere. The medium is, in fact, growing and changing to better suit listeners’ needs. Tune into food talk radio for companionship, advice, and to lose those stubborn extra pounds.
