Los Angeles – The fourth and final installment of our special feature summary of April 2018 ratings overviews deals with (commercial, English language) news/talk outlets.
All-news was addressed last Wednesday (5/23); Major League Baseball flagships the following day (Thursday, 5/24); and we highlighted classic hits-oldies last Friday (5/25).
Ratings criteria for PPM-market commercial news/talk facilities is at least a .5 (6+) in the April 2018 ratings period, which covered March 29 – April 25. By contrast, eligibility to appear on the all-news and classic hits-oldies panels is based on a top 20 finish (6+, April 2018); there is no (6+) threshold for the MLB flagships.
Nielsen Audio releases audience estimates for facilities that subscribe to its services. Owing to that reason, ratings stats in this exclusive overview are limited to stations that pay Nielsen Audio for its data.
