FRISKY in 2011 :: A Look Back


2011 was a milestone year for FRISKY. It marked our 10-Year Anniversary and was our biggest year yet in terms of shows, listeners and reach. Stats on our website and the actual radio stream tend to be very different as most of our audience goes directly to the audio stream by ways of links from other sites, bookmarks etc. But lets look at some stats about you, the listener:

Overall, you came from 194 different regions from across the globe. The Top 5 countries are:
1. United States
2. Germany
3. Greece
4. Hungary
5. Russia

We even had visits from far away places like Fiji, Bhutan, even Greenland!

From inside the USA, the majority of you came from California. This isnt surprising as FRISKY was founded in San Francisco one fine morning (or night, we cant remember) in May 2001. So it remains strong in San Francisco and indeed California. Rounding up the Top 5 states in the US are:
1. California
2. New York
3. Florida
4. Texas
5. Illinois

As for cities, our top visitors came from the following cities:
1. Athens
2. Budapest
3. Moscow
4. Istanbul
5. Buenos Aires

Our TTSL, or Total Time Spent Listening, in 2011 totaled 2,665,989. That means that in 2011, you spent over of 2.6 million hours listening to FRISKY. Thats more than 306 years in total. We’d say thats time well spent!

So there you have it. Thats you, the FRISKY fan and listener, in 2011. We cant thank you enough for investing so much of your time and energy with us! We hope to continue to improve in 2012! More on that later.

In the next few days, I’ll be doing another post that tallies up some stats from the content and shows point of view soon: which shows were successful, which need some improvement and the all-important end of year Top 20 shows of 2011!

Rock on!
