Spotify is in an odd place as the company releases its latest earnings report Monday. The streaming service rules its industry with 36 percent of the global market, as of last year, but its competitors are some of the world’s largest companies—namely, Google, Apple and Amazon. Now this month, Google and Amazon have both created new, free, ad-based tiers of their music services, cutting at Spotify’s main profit model.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
