Nielsen Audio’s July 2020 survey period covered June 18 – July 15. Managing editor Mike Kinosian (Kinosian@TALKERS.com) provides his “Takeaways” from these 12 PPM-markets.

New York City

Spoken-Word Formats – Immediately following April’s +1.1 to 3.0 (6+), iHeartMedia news/talk WOR “710 The Voice of New York” is a collective -1.2 in three straight drops (3.0 – 2.4 – 1.9 – 1.8, 6+) and repeats at #19. Although flat at 1.4 (6+), Red Apple Media news/talk WABC climbs from #22 to a tie at #21. After gaining one-tenth in back-to-back reports (.8 – .9 – 1.0, 6+), Townsquare Media’s WKXW “New Jersey 101.5” falters by one-tenth to .9 (#24 to #23, 6+).

Anchored at #20, WFAN – which improved by four-tenths in May/June (1.4 – 1.7 – 1.8, 6+) – forfeits one-tenth to 1.7 (6+). The Entercom sports talker had lost approximately 54% (-1.7) of its 6+ AQH share via three straight decreases (3.1 – 2.3 – 1.9 – 1.4, 6+). Similarly-formatted WEPN-FM “98.7 ESPN New York” is off seven-tenths in June/July (1.6 – 1.0 – .9, flat at #24, 6+). Entering the May sweep, WEPN-FM dropped nine-tenths in three straight downturns (2.1 – 1.7 – 1.5 – 1.2, (1.5 – 1.2, 6+).

Three successive increases by WINS yielded a +2.2 (3.5 – 3.6 – 4.7 – 5.7, 6+), but the Entercom-owned news operation is -1.9 in three successive declines (5.7 – 4.9 – 4.2 – 3.8, flat at #7, 6+). In June, co-owned/similarly-formatted WCBS-AM regained the three-tenths that vanished in May (3.4 – 3.1 – 3.4, 6+); however, WCBS-AM surrenders six-tenths to 2.8 (6+) and tumbles from the top ten (#9 to #14).

Tied with WCBS-AM at #14 is WNYC Broadcasting Foundation public radio news/talk station WNYC-FM, which is -2.3 via three consecutive drops (5.1 – 3.3 – 2.9 – 2.8, #13 to #14, 6+). In three straight down or flat trends, co-owned public radio news/talk WNYC-AM has dropped roughly half (-.5) its 6+ AQH share (1.1 – .7 – .7 .6, 6+) and is unchanged at #27.

New York City Music Formats – Roaring back from June’s -2.1 with July’s +1.3 (8.7 – 6.6 – 7.9, 6+), Spanish Broadcasting System Spanish tropical WSKQ is #1 the fourth time in a row. Entering the June sweep, “Mega 97.9” had been an overall +2.8 via three straight increases (5.9 – 6.5 – 7.7 – 8.7, 6+). WSKQ was off seven-tenths in January/February (6.6 – 6.0 – 5.9, 6+). This time last month, “Mega 97.9” was deadlocked for the lead with Entercom classic hits-oldies WCBS-FM, but “New York’s Greatest Hits” drops four-tenths (6.6 – 6.2, 6+) and segues to second-place. WCBS-FM was +1.3 in May/June (5.3 – 5.8 – 6.6, 6+), thus wiping away April’s loss of nine-tenths. In three consecutive gains, WCBS-FM was an overall +1.9 (4.3 – 5.0 – 5.7 – 6.2, 6+), directly after its -1.6 in December/“Holiday” 2019 (5.9 – 4.9 – 4.3, 6+). Down or flat the last three survey periods for a net loss of -1.1, Entercom hot AC WNEW-FM “NEW 102.7” slices away roughly half that shortfall with a +.6 to 3.0 (#16 to #12, 6+). In an alternating down/up sequence that includes July’s +.5 (2.8 – 2.3 – 3.0 – 2.8 – 3.3, 6+), Spanish Broadcasting System Spanish contemporary WPAT-FM “Amor 93.1” cracks the top ten (#15 to #10). Meanwhile, Univision Radio’s similarly-formatted WXNY “X-96.3,” which was +1.4 in May/June (3.1 – 3.2 – 4.5, 6+), plummets by -1.0 to 3.5 (sixth to eighth, 6+). On the heels of June’s improvement of eight-tenths, iHeartMedia classic rock WAXQ regresses by one-half share (5.7 – 5.2, 6+) but carries on at #4. Immediately prior to May, “Q-104.3” was a collective +1.8 through four straight sweeps without a loss (3.5 – 3.9 – 3.9 – 4.0 – 5.3, 6+). Following three straight up or flat reports that generated a +.7 (.9 – 1.1 – 1.1 – 1.6, 6+), Educational Media Foundation contemporary Christian WPLJ “Positive & Encouraging K-Love” forfeits two-tenths to 1.4 (flat at #21, 6+). June’s 1.6 was its highest 6+-stat since “Holiday” 2019 (1.6, as well).

Los Angeles

Spoken-Word Formats  – In addition to gaining three-tenths (4.4 – 4.7, 6+), KFI progresses from fourth to second. “AM 640” was a combined -1.1 in May/June (5.5 – 4.6 – 4.4, 6+). The iHeartMedia news/talk property more than doubled (+2.9) its 6+ AQH share from “Holiday” 2019 through April 2020; crossed the five-share threshold; and had an April-only stay at #1 (2.6 – 3.3 – 3.8 – 4.2 – 5.5,  6+). April 2020 marked the first time KFI reached #1 since March 2011 (4.9, 6+). Off four-tenths in three straight down or flat reports (1.8 – 1.5 – 1.5 – 1.4, 6+), Salem Media Group news/talk KRLA “AM 870 The Answer” falls from #25 to #28. Cumulus Media’s KABC almost tripled (+.9) its 6+ AQH share as a result of four consecutive improvements (.5 – .7 – .9 – 1.0 – 1.4, 6+), but “790 News-Talk-Evolved” is off four-tenths via three sweeps in succession without an increase (1.4 – 1.1 – 1.0 – 1.0, #33 to #32, 6+). KABC is one-tenth ahead of iHeartMedia-owned KEIB “AM 1150 The Patriot,” which has a March 2020 through July 2020 topline of: .8 – 1.1 – 1.0 – .8 – .9 (#36 to #35, 6+).

Steady at #38, iHeartMedia’s KLAC “AM 570 LA Sports” gains a collective one-tenth in three straight sweeps without a loss (.5 – .5 – .6 – .6, 6+). Disney-owned/similarly-formatted KSPN “710 ESPN” is without an increase the sixth time in a row for a net decrease of seven-tenths (1.1 – .9 – .8 – .4 – .4 – .4 – .4, #42 to #41, 6+). In addition to both being flat in July, KLAC and KSPN were each off one-tenth in March; -.4 in April; and unchanged in May.

Surrendering 70% of June’s +1.0 (3.9 – 3.2, -.7, 6+), Entercom’s KNX “1070 News Radio” departs the top ten (#6 to #12). Following a March improvement of eight-tenths, KNX was down nine-tenths in April/May (3.8 – 3.4 – 2.9, 6+).

Los Angeles Music Formats – By gaining one-half share to 4.6 (fifth to third, 6+), Entercom smooth AC KTWV “94.7 The Wave” pulls the plug on three slips in succession that accounted for a net loss of eight-tenths (4.9 – 4.5 – 4.3 – 4.1, 6+). Over and above posting its fifth straight report without a loss for a net gain of nine-tenths (5.2 – 5.2 – 5.2 – 5.6 – 5.7 – 6.1, 6+), classic hits-oldies sibling KRTH “K-Earth 101” is #1 the third consecutive month.

Prior to logging a +.9 this time last month to 5.1 (6+), “Coast” was an overall -9.5 through five straight setbacks (13.7 – 6.5 – 5.7 – 5.1 – 4.5 – 4.2, 6+). After four sweeps in a row at #1, KOST shifted to the runner-up slot in March. “Coast” had been a collective +8.5 via three consecutive positive or neutral sweeps (5.2 – 5.2 – 9.3 – 13.7, 6+). “My-FM” was up eight-tenths in May/June (4.1 – 4.5 – 4.9, 6+), with June’s 4.9 its highest 6+-showing since last October (4.9, as well).

Chicago

Spoken-Word Formats – Following four straight increases that resulted in an overall +2.6 (3.0 – 3.8 – 3.9 – 4.5 – 5.6, 6+), Nexstar Media Group news/talk WGN “Radio 720” is -2.3 owing to three slips in a row (5.6 – 5.2 – 4.5 – 3.3, seventh to ninth, 6+). Cumulus Media news/talk WLS-AM “890 AM” is down four-tenths in that same timespan and exits the top twenty (2.4 – 2.1 – 2.0 – 2.0, #19 to #21, 6+).

As a result of seven successive reports without an increase, Entercom sports talk WSCR “670 The Score” is an overall -2.0 (3.5 – 3.3 – 2.7 – 2.5 – 2.2 – 2.1 – 1.5 – 1.5, #24 to #23, 6+). By gaining two-tenths to 1.0 (flat at #27, 6+), Disney/ESPN-owned WMVP “ESPN Chicago 1000” applies the brakes to eight consecutive down or flat sweeps that resulted in a -1.1 (1.9 – 1.6 – 1.4 – 1.4 – 1.2 – 1.2 – 1.2 – 1.2 – .8, 6+).

Up one-tenth (6.9 – 7.0, 6+), Entercom all-news WBBM-AM & WCFS-FM is on top the sixth time in a row. Immediately prior to being -1.5 in May/June (8.4 – 7.0 – 6.9, 6+), “News Radio 780 AM & 105.9 FM” was a collective +3.5 through four straight gains (4.9 – 5.4 – 5.8 – 7.7 – 8.4, 6+).

A combined +1.8 in March/April (3.6 – 4.3 – 5.4, 6+), Chicago Public Media news/talk WBEZ is down the third straight report for a -2.2 (5.4 – 4.7 – 3.8 – 3.2, ninth to tenth,  6+).

Chicago Music Formats – Off eight-tenths in three straight down or flat moves (2.8 – 2.1 – 2.1 – 2.0, 6+), Entercom CHR WBBM-FM “B-96 Chicago” ends the slide with +.7 to 2.7 (#19 to a four-way tie at #14, 6+). Co-owned triple A WXRT “93 XRT Chicago’s Finest Rock” continues to be on a roll with its seventh straight report without a loss for a collective +1.4 (3.1 – 3.1 – 3.3 – 3.8 – 3.9 – 3.9 – 3.9 – 4.5, eighth to seventh, 6+). Separated by six-tenths are Entercom-owned WUSN “US-99 Chicago’s Hottest Country,” up six-tenths in three straight gains (2.1 – 2.4 – 2.5 – 2.7, #15 – #14, 6+), and iHeartMedia’s WEBG “Big 95.5 Chicago’s New Country,” which nets nine-tenths in four consecutive reports without a loss (1.2 – 1.5 – 1.5 – 1.7 – 2.1, #22 – #20, 6+). Tied at #14 are two ACs that have their dissimilar streaks broken. As a result of four consecutive reports with a loss, Venture Technologies Group-owned WRME-LP netted six-tenths (2.4 – 2.4 – 2.4 – 2.5 – 3.0, 6+), but “Me TV FM 87.7” forfeits half that windfall (2.7, -.3, #12 to #14, 6+). Conversely, in five consecutive down or flat reports, WSHE “100.3 SHE” was a collective -1.3 (3.6 – 3.3 – 3.1 – 2.6 – 2.3 – 2.3, 6+); however, the Hubbard Broadcasting adult contemporary outlet curtails the skid with a +.4 to 2.7 (#17 to #14, 6+). Cumulus Media alternative WKQX is within 2.0 – 2.9 territory the ninth successive ratings period and nets nine-tenths in three straight gains (2.0 – 2.5 – 2.8 – 2.9, #13 to #12, 6+). A combined +1.0 in May/June (2.8 – 3.2 – 3.8, 6+), Univision Radio regional Mexican WOJO “Que Buena 105.1” returns 70% of the boon with a -.7 and exits the top ten (3.1, #9 to #11, 6+). June’s 3.8 was the strongest 6+-showing for “Que Buena” since April 2019’s 3.9. A June increase of six-tenths enabled Cumulus Media classic hits-oldies WLS-FM to reach the five-share level (5.2, 6+) for the first time since last November (5.1); however, “94.7 Chicago’s Classic Hits” falters by six-tenths to 4.6 (fifth to sixth, 6+). Regressing by one-half share each are iHeartMedia adult contemporary WLIT “93.9 Lite FM” (5.0, fourth to fifth, 6+) and Spanish Broadcasting System regional Mexican WLEY “La Ley 107.9” (#15 to #21). WLIT was -10.0 in four straight decreases (13.7 – 5.5 – 4.8 – 4.3 – 3.7, 6+), but rebounded with a May/June +1.8 (3.7 – 5.2 – 5.5, 6+). “Lite FM” was #1 in December 2019, “Holiday” 2019, and January 2020. “La Ley” is a collective -1.1 as a result of three straight dips (3.1 – 2.8 – 2.5 – 2.0, 6+); 2.0 is its lowest 6+-stat since 1.9 in January.

Spanish Broadcasting System’s similarly-formatted KRZZ “La Raza” is down eight-tenths in three slips in succession and departs the top twenty (2.4 – 2.3 -1.8 – 1.6, #20 to #21, 6+).

May’s loss interrupted four consecutive increases that accounted for a +6.7 (5.6 – 7.0 – 7.4 – 7.7 – 12.4, 6+).

Promptly after breaking out a +1.1 to 3.9 (6+), Entercom-owned WNYL forfeits roughly half that increase (3.4, -.5, 6+) and departs the top ten (#9 to #11). Entering the June sweep, “Alt 92.3 New York’s New Alternative” was off seven-tenths via four straight sweeps without an increase (3.5 – 3.1 – 3.1 – 2.8 – 2.8, 6+).
