What Is DRT?: How We Track Your Radio Spins


DigitalRadioTracker.com Inc., also known as DRT, is a leading global internet radio monitoring company which tracks radio airplay of songs played on over 5000+ radio stations around the globe. These stations (major to independent) are comprised of an array of FM Terrestrial, College, Commercial and Non-Commercial as well as thousands of streaming Internet Radio Stations. DigitalRadioTracker.com Inc. has customized a technology that monitors radio airplay detections of songs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. This amazing technology requires no special encoding or fingerprinting. The system’s unique database logs songs that are played on all radio stations that DRT currently monitors. A timestamp of the date and time a song is played along with which version of the song is being played is recorded by DRT’s system. In the past, music industry professionals had no clue if other version(s) of their songs were being played as they were undetected and/or never reported by other monitoring companies. DRT has filled this void within the music industry. The DRT system can detect all versions of songs aired on radio.

Some of the radio broadcasting networks DigitalRadioTracker.com monitors include: iHeart Media, Urban One, Sirius/XM, Shoutcast, TuneIn, Icecast, Beasley Broadcasting, Cumulus, Emmis, Cox Radio, Entercom, OnlineRadioBox, Townsquare Media, Internet-Radio.com, Dash Radio, Live365, Radio.net, BBC Radio Europe and thousands of independent streaming digital radio broadcasters.
