Since they have been confronted with a permanent fear of losing customers, the media world is suffering from the terror of media metrics. Competition forces them to beg and implore viewers and listeners to stay with them and use a variety of wordings like: keep listening, keep watching, stay put, don't change the channel, stay with us, stay right where you are, don't move, stick with us, be connected, stick round, hang around , sit tight, stay tuned.
