LOS ANGELES — The first in our four-part series of July 2017 ratings recaps begins with the all-news format, where our qualifying panel did considerably better year-to-year (July 2016 – July 2017) versus month-to-month (June 2017 – July 2017).

The following (6+) scoreboards are comprised of all-news stations that appeared in any of the 48 PPM-markets in July 2017, a ratings period that covered June 22 – July 19.

Nielsen Audio only releases audience estimates for facilities that subscribe to its services.

Owing to that reason, ratings stats in this exclusive analysis are limited to stations that pay Nielsen Audio for its data. In that context, this is practically an overview of only CBS Radio-owned properties, as all stations listed here are under that group’s umbrella – with the exception of WTOP-FM, Washington, DC (Hubbard); KOMO, Seattle (Sinclair Broadcast Group); and KFBK, Sacramento (iHeartMedia).

Designated by an asterisk (*) are those facilities that are all-news throughout the day, but program extended talk blocks as well.
