Coleman Insights Launches FACT USA National Music Tests

Subscription-based music testing service initially available for seven formats

RALEIGH, NC, JUNE 18, 2024 – Media research firm Coleman Insights announces the debut of its FACT USASM National Music Tests for the Mainstream AC, Hot AC, Country, Alternative, Classic Hits, Classic Rock, and R&B formats. Subscriptions are now available to radio stations, streaming services, and other users, and results for all seven formats will be ready in time for implementation prior to this year’s Fall radio ratings period.

Coleman Insights President Warren Kurtzman explains why the firm created FACT USA. “Everyone who programs music should have access to high-quality research, regardless of budget. With FACT USA, we’re able to offer data and insights about music tastes at an affordable price point.”

Every FACT USA study will use a national sample that reflects each format’s respective target audience. Subscribers will have access to summary reports detailing each study’s findings and song-by-song data will be delivered via The Analyst software from Cornerstone Research, in which programmers can sort by various measures including demographics and geography. Additionally, FACT USA will include EraGuideSM, Coleman Insights’ exclusive metric that helps align the data to a station or platform’s strategy.

For radio stations FACT USA subscriptions are capped at $5,000 per station, with lower prices for stations in smaller markets. Subscription packages are also available for national platforms. For an additional fee, subscribers may opt for a Coleman consulting package that includes a two-hour sorting session, and pre- and post-sort Music Monitor Analyses to ensure alignment between the music strategy and its song-by-song execution.
