Traditional media concepts are a thing of the past, the entire industry is undergoing fundamental change: streaming services are no longer just platforms for the consumption of films and TV programs, now they are investing in the production and licensing of globally successful own content – and are thus in direct competition with the traditional TV and video industry.
Medicine broadcasting is not going away.
It was calculated that in 2020, the pharmaceutical industry in the United States spent 6.58 billion U.S. dollars on direct-to-consumer advertising. In the same period of 2019 the pharma sector spent 6.56 billion dollars.
In ’emergencies’ radio is king. If you have ever been in a post earthquake, tornado, or hurricane situation you have thanked the information coming from the radio.

Relatively low cost of operation, strong emotional bonding with their audience they hold a unique position in the industry.
60-second TV commercials
It’s such a surefire recipe for misinformation and manipulation that nearly every developed country forbids the practice. Only the United States and New Zealand approve of it. Nevertheless, all businesses are permitted to deduct “ordinary and necessary expenses,” including marketing, critics say there’s nothing ordinary and necessary about direct-to-consumer drug ads. They weren’t even a factor for the industry until 1997, when the FDA relaxed its advertising guidelines.
Trusted News Sources
According to a survey held among adults in the United States in May 2021, ABC was considered to be the most credible news source in the country, with 58 percent of respondents believing the organization to be very or somewhat credible. Sources which fared less well were MSNBC, Fox News, National Public Radio, and Huffington Post, with less than 45 percent of adults agreeing that they found these to be reliable news outlets. The credibility of almost all the news sources in the ranking was considered lower in 2021 than in previous years, highlighting consumers’ growing concerns about reliability, bias, and trustworthiness in the news industry.
