May 2017 PPM Analysis: News

| June 21, 2017

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

The following (6+) scoreboards are comprised of all-news stations that appeared in any of the 48 PPM-markets in May 2017, a ratings period that covered April 27 – May 24.

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.

Several facilities that are all-news throughout the day, but program extended talk blocks are designated by an asterisk (*).

Sports talk is the next format to be analyzed; email managing editor Mike Kinosian at
