Mediabase is a company that monitors what has been aired on college, public, commercial and Internet radio. Instead of relying on what the PD/MD of a station reports, the monitoring system listens to what the station actually plays.
Mediabase monitors the airplay of over 1,800 radio stations and updates continuously 24 hours daily. Besides using computers to listen to the stations, Mediabase also uses people. Since a human is actually doing the listening, the person can make notes of special things, like if the music was heard in an advertisement, or if the artist was talked about by DJs, or other things that a computer would miss.
Formats monitored include Mainstream Top 40, Rhythmic, Mainstream Rock, Active Rock, Modern Rock, Classic Rock, Triple A, Country, Oldies, AC, Hot AC, Urban, Urban AC, Smooth AC, Christian AC, Gospel and Latin.
In addition to providing vital airplay information to radio stations in the U.S. and Canada, Mediabase provides information to every major record label and distributor, as well as concert promoters, artists, managers, music publishers, movie studios, video game developers and more.
Mediabase charts are published weekly in USA Today, and are used on nearly all radio countdown shows and dozens of websites and magazines.
Mediabase publishes music charts and data based on the most played songs on terrestrial and satellite radio, and provides in-depth analytical tools for radio and record industry professionals. Mediabase charts and airplay data are used on many popular radio countdown shows and televised music awards programs. Music charts are published in both domestic and international trade publications and newspapers worldwide. Mediabase is a division of Clear Channel Communications, Inc.
