[ ] Written communications pursuant to Rule 425 under the Securities Act (17 CFR 230.425)
Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On February 16, 2007, Arbitron Inc. (the "Company") notified The New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that, from September 2005 through February 2007, the Company was not in full compliance with the provisions of Section 303A of the NYSE’s Corporate Governance Listing Standards (the "Listing Standards"). Specifically, the Company’s non-compliance was caused by the failure of one member of the Company’s Board of Directors (the "Board") to be independent (as such term is defined in Section 303A.2(b)(iii) of the Listing Standards, which contain requirements for director independence in addition to those specified under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) because of the employment of the director’s adult son by the Company’s registered independent public accounting firm.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
