From Issue:

CBS yesterday announced it's created and launched the new "Your Day" iPad app, which aggregates content from its local radio, television, and online properties. The app adds content from CBS-owned properties like CNet, CBSSports.com, and Chow.com as well.

The "Your Day" app is free and available for 24 of the top U.S. markets.

MediaPost reports, "One of the key strategies has been to consolidate separate Web properties in a given market into one local online hub. In New York, for example, different sites for WCBS-TV (Channel 2), WFAN, 1010 WINS and WCBS 880 were combined into one property -- CBSNewYork.com -- leading to traffic gains beyond the total of the combined audiences for the four properties." CBS is now duplicating that strategy in 25 markets.

ComScore data shows total listening hours for local CBS radio streams are up 20% 2010-2011, and total listening hours per session are up 18% (interestingly, Triton's Webcast Metrics has shown steady decline in Average Active Sessions for CBS from late 2009 through January 2012 -- you can see that here, and our coverage of the latest Webcast Metrics ratings is here).

According to a recent BIA/Kelsey forecast, local online ad revenue across the country will grow from $21.2 billion this year to $38.5 billion by 2016. The growth in the digital segment will offset slower than anticipated growth in total local media advertising revenues, the company says.
