Marketers and agencies are increasing their commutes and spending more days at the office, according to a new Advertiser Perceptions study of 305 media agencies and brands commissioned by the Cumulus Media | Westwood One Audio Active Group. Interviews took place April 2-12 and the results were compared to the same study conducted in April 2022, October 2022, April 2023 and October 2023.

The group also commissioned a MARU/Matchbox study to examine the commuting habits of everyday Americans. The nationally representative study was conducted April, 2024 among 1,617 adults 18 and over. These results were compared to the same questions asked by Nielsen and MARU/Matchbox over the past four years. This week's blog outlines the key findings.
