Nielsen: Today's Dad Likes His Radio
Interestingly, when it comes to purchasing electronics, dads are not bound to a particular type of store. During the past 12 months, roughly a third of dads have shopped for electronics at either an online, electronic or discount store.
While dads are heavy users of technology devices with 96% owning a smartphone and 75% owning a tablet, they also enjoy watching television. On average, dads with children in the home spend more than four hours per day watching TV (live TV, time-shifted viewing and connected devices). News, Sporting Events, Comedies and General Variety, which includes late night talk shows and reality shows, are the top program genres to reach dads.
In a sweeping new statistical analysis that defines the modern dad, Nielsen-Scarborough found that on a weekly basis, men 18+ with children 12 and under spend nearly 14 hours per week listening to the radio. This comes according to Nielsen Audio data from fall 2015.
With more than three-fourths of the dads working, it’s not surprising that they prefer to listen during morning drive, and nearly 80% of their listening occurs outside of the home.
