SCBA: "Serious Setbacks For Pandora". The Southern California Broadcasters Association has published its latest white paper entitled, "Consumer Response and Listening Satisfaction of Broadcast Radio vs. Pandora." The SCBA concludes that Southern California radio had 7.4 percent listener growth over the past six years. And the report says Pandora is facing "serious setbacks," including a 70.3 percent loss in time spent per session in a 25-month period, and an 83.3 percent loss in daily log-ins to its site. "The most ominous new information is the fact that consumer awareness of Pandora-aired commercials drops to only 20 percent within 24 months compared to a 93 percent awareness for commercials aired on broadcast radio over the same time frame."

Moonves: There's a 'strong possibility' that Showtime will go a la carte. Addressing speculation about the possible OTT agenda for his company's premium cable network, Les Moonves said there is a "very strong possibility" that CBS Corp. will soon disaggregate Showtime from the pay-TV bundle and offer it to consumers a la carte, over the Internet.

Moffett: Broadband regulation, resurgent cord-cutting pose 'wall of worry' for pay TV. Although pay-TV profit margins are up and leading all media and entertainment sectors, investment analyst Craig Moffett is advising clients to be wary of operator stock right now.
