Canadian radio thriving- quite well, actually

Shamelessly swiped from Tod Maffin's Blog at the CBC:

Canada’s commercial radio stations revenue increased by 5.7% in the last year, going from $1.3 billion to $1.4 billion. Profit margins went up too by 2.7% to 20%.
  • Commercial AM radio experienced stronger growth in revenues between 2005 and 2006 than at any other time in the last five years.
  • Revenues for commercial FM radio stations in Canada have been steadily increasing over the last five years.
  • The Canadian private-radio industry employed 9,763 people in 2006 and paid a total of $577.8 million in salaries.
Wow. Maybe I should rethink this whole "moving to Canada for political reasons" thing? At least I know I would have a good chance of finding a job in radio. ;-)
