WBUR.org audience quadruples in four years

WBUR’s online audience quadruples in four years.

News visitors flocked to the site for live audio streaming and webpages providing text-based news. The chart presents weekly visits to WBUR.org from April 2009 to April 2013 as running 3-week averages recorded by Google Analytics.
