What kind of Royalties will I earn from US Radio?

Let's talk about performance royalties.

Radio airplay is considered a public performance and therefore would generate performance royalties. Public performance royalties are collected by the local Performing Rights Organizations (PROs) located in the territory the airplay occurs within. 

Please note that within the United States, terrestrial broadcasters (AM or FM stations) are not required to pay performance royalties to sound recording copyright owners.
