National Public Radio statistics show an audience getting older.
Produced for Oct. 20, 2015, but can air a few days later.
Current magazine reports that the average "quarter-hour listening during National Public Radio s morning drive time has dropped 11 percent in the past five years, and the afternoon audience is down 6 percent. Young people are listening even less, and the only age bracket with a listening increase is 65-plus. The Morning Edition show has 20 percent fewer listeners under 55 since 2010, Nielsen data shared by NPR. All Things Considered had a slight gain among listeners ages 12-24 and 55-64 and larger growth among 65-plus listeners. NPR is now guessing that in 2020, 30 percent of its audience will be 44-year-old or younger, a figure that was almost double in 1985. NPR s podcast downloads rose 75 percent last year, and grew nearly 35 percent, so there is some hope for the future.
