   Music Industry magazine targeting radio and the music industry
Hits is an American music industry trade publication. Founded by Lenny Beer and Dennis Lavinthal, who had previously worked in independent promotion, it was launched as a print magazine in August 1986. It quickly became one of the more widely circulated "tip sheets" with considerable record industry support.

An online version of the magazine, Hits Daily Double, premiered in May 2000. Both on and offline, the magazine's content includes proprietary weekly sales and airplay data, a section on breaking artists ("Vibe-Raters"), interviews with music industry leaders, a weekly cartoon, music and music industry news, and charts provided by Shazam, Vevo, and Mediabase.
