About that talk radio wave...

| 1 Comment

If I'm reading these ratings from correctly, the recall obsession wasn't good for KFI. The talk station's summer ratings were down slightly from the spring book, and down even more compared to last summer. It's still the #1 talk station in Southern California -- which means the station is listened to by 4.2% of the radio audience age 12 and over.

KABC's ratings plunged this summer (I think a 24% drop qualifies as a "plunge") to a 2.2 share. KLXS, the FM entry in the talk wars, also fell to 2.2. Anti-Liberal Talk does appear to have helped KRLA, which jumped from a 0.6 share to 1.0. In each case, I'm sure the stations have paid for detailed breakdowns by program that will show more, but we moochers don't have access.
