AirCheck, Australia’s most accurate and immediate broadcast monitoring service has announced a partnership with The Music Network to provide detailed airplay data for their weekly publication. The Music Network, owned by Peer Group Media, now provides the most comprehensive list of music charts and song analysis ever compiled in Australia based on actual Radio and TV airplay, all sourced from AirCheck.
The Hot 100 Chart, Airplay Charts by each state, Airplay Format Charts, Record company Airplay share and even a breakdown of songs and commercials by day-part on a different radio station each week, are at the core of the new look Music Network.
The Music Network, re launched in June, remains the premier source of information for the Australian music industry and is now further strengthened by its comprehensive coverage of the ever-changing digital media platforms.
Jade Harley, Managing Editor of The Music Network commented. “When we relaunched the magazine we had to be sure that our charts and analysis was the most accurate in the marketplace. After in-depth testing we were certain that AirCheck were the perfect partner to populate our charts and drive our data, offering the most current and accurate airplay data of songs and commercials.”
Keith Williams, Managing Director of AirCheck Australia said today “AirCheck is the only service to capture every song and commercial on a radio or TV station and therefore is compelling data for market intelligence. You see the full picture. The Music Network represents the Music Industry and AirCheck monitors the music played on Australian radio and TV, so it made sense to work in partnership.”
AirCheck is subscribed by all major radio networks and record companies in Australia and has been leading the market with accurate independent commercial and song verification for over 5 years.
