N.Y. state plans to sue Arbitron

October 04, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

New York Atty. Gen. Andrew Cuomo said he would sue Arbitron Inc., accusing it of fraudulent business practices related to the company's new method of rating radio broadcasting, which he said seemed unfair to minority stations.

Mobile-phone-size devices carried by listeners pick up information identifying radio stations. Cuomo said the meters might not adequately represent young black and Latino listeners; mobile-phone-only households, which tend to have young and minority-group people; and people who don't speak English.
