Truck drivers spend a ton of time on the road going from place to place. During these hours it is important for their entertainment and happiness to find worthwhile audio material to enjoy. It’s as important as having some healthy snacks on hand. All those long hours spent alone on the road have made many people question what exactly truck drivers listen to while on the job. Read on to discover the answers.
Truck Drivers Love The Radio
They may say that video killed the radio star, but this couldn’t be less true for truck drivers. Radio is immensely popular amongst truck drivers, with certain programs syndicated across the entire United States with them in mind. One such show, Red Eye Radio, has a regular audience of about 2,400,000 people, with the vast majority of these being truck drivers. While terrestrial radio is most popular, satellite radio cannot be overlooked. Road Dog Radio is a network on SiriusXM that’s also just for truck drivers.
The Popularity of Podcasts
Due to the storage capacities of your run of the mill smartphones these days, many truck drivers have hours and hours of their favorite podcasts stored on their phones. Many have made a transition from radio to podcasts, or still enjoy both. Many radio shows and programs aimed at truck drivers now offer their shows in the form of podcasts, such as Red Eye Radio, OOIDA’s LandLine Now, and Trucker Dump.
Music Streaming Apps Are Picking Up Popularity
Unlike in the old days, where people had books and books of records, tapes, or CDs to lug around, people have access to millions of songs through a click or tap. Many of these apps are free through either Google Play or the iPhone app store. Some popular streaming services include Soundcloud, Spotify, and Pandora.
