LOS ANGELES — After having posted special feature March 2017 ratings overviews of all-news stations (Thursday, 4/27) and news/talk outlets (Friday, 4/29), we turn our attention to classic hits-oldies.
This summary is comprised of PPM-market facilities that rank in the top 20 (6+) in the March 2017 ratings period, which covered March 2 – 29.
Bottom-line matchup: The typical PPM-market classic hits-oldies station in March 2017 generally notches a 6+-share of 5.11 and finishes in sixth-place (#6.38). Those (6+) rank and share stats are better than both of its aforementioned spoken-word counterparts.
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.
