Using its patented digital technology, STS captures in excess of 51 thousand songs, 27 thousand artists, 11 thousand record labels on more than 1,200 radio stations in over 120 U.S. markets including countries around the globe. STS also uses the service to track radio airplay at syndicated shows and internet radio.
Since its 1999 debut, STS has become the standard for the radio and music industry because of its accuracy of tracking and monitoring songs, thus eliminating the use of call-outs to music industry trades and record labels when it comes to adding new music. The service has also helped tracks that receive airplay become major hits for both major and independent artists/bands, especially in New Music Weekly’s charts, where tracks have reached the top honors.
