Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On January 24, 2007, the Compensation and Human Resources Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors of Arbitron Inc. (the "Company") met and approved a cash bonus plan for the Company’s executive officers for 2007, which would be payable in early 2008 (the "Bonus Plan").

The Bonus Plan provides for the payment of cash bonuses based upon the Company’s earnings per share, revenue, and implementation of certain non-financial initiatives, with earnings per share weighted 40%, revenue weighted 10%, and the non-financial initiatives weighted 50% in the aggregate for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007. The bulk of each executive officer’s bonus for 2007 will be determined as a result of achievement of Company goals, with the remaining portion based on achievement of individual goals, except in the case of Steve Morris, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, and Sean Creamer, the Company’s Executive Vice President, Finance and Planning and Chief Financial Officer, whose bonuses will be determined entirely on the basis of achievement of Company goals.

The Bonus Plan provides for a target bonus for each executive officer, expressed as a percentage of base salary. The target bonuses for the executive officers who are expected to be named executive officers in 2007 are: Mr. Morris, 75% of base salary; Owen Charlebois, the Company’s President, Operations, Technology, and Research & Development, 55% of base salary; Mr. Creamer, 50% of base salary; Pierre Bouvard, the Company’s President, Sales and Marketing, 52% of base salary; and Linda Dupree, Senior Vice President, Portable People Meter New Product Development, 45% of base salary. The target bonuses for other executive officers range from 40-45% of base salary. A greater or lesser amount may be paid in the event the targets are exceeded or not met.


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.
