COLUMBIA Md., June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Arbitron Inc.

Mr. Dennis will lead the sales efforts of the Company's mobile measurement solutions, such as the syndicated Arbitron Mobile Trends Panels™ service in the U.S. He will also be working closely with Arbitron cross-platform services and advertiser and agency teams.
