    • Pete great question … 63% terrestrial vs. 37% digital as predominant radio source … Nielsen Dec 2103. But as you would suspect the growth is in digital and just as Mobile has over taken Desktop for the web … this will happen in radio in the next few year … primary reason in car music apps will be in most cars … spells serious trouble for Sirius … Thanks
