LOS ANGELES — As a follow-up to yesterday’s analysis of sports talk (Wednesday, 3/28), we carry on our extensive overview of the February 2018 sweep with a look at public-owned stations whose primary focus is news/talk.
Breakouts shown here consist of data from public news/talk stations that rank in the top 20 in any PPM market (6+, February 2018).
Over and above that particular ratings caveat, Nielsen Audio only releases audience estimates for stations that subscribe to its services. Thus, ratings stats in this analysis are limited to facilities that pay the company for its information.
Tomorrow: A look at classic rock, and then next Monday (4/2) – commercial news/talk; email managing editor Mike Kinosian at Kinosian@TALKERS.com
