Advertise In Las Vegas: Spotify and PandoraIn 1940, KENO became the first radio station to serve Clark County. Today, 1,502,898 adult consumers tune-in to Las Vegas radio stations every week. This is significantly more than watch local TV or read newspapers. 

Las Vegas small business owners, however, also want to know how local radio compares to streaming audio platforms like Pandora and Spotify, especially as it relates to advertising. The answer could surprise many of them.

Pandora was created to provide a personalized radio station catering to the musical preferences of each user.  The playlists were determined by a proprietary algorithm and then streamed directly to each listeners' computer. Over the next few years, the service became available on iPads and smartphones.

Spotify was born in 2008. It, too, was streamed directly to the listeners' electronic devices. Unlike Pandora, which predicts music the user would like to hear, Spotify allows the consumer to create individualized playlists based on music of their own choosing.
