LOS ANGELES — A thorough examination of mainstream CHR wraps up our four-part series reviewing August 2018 ratings performances.
Earlier recaps addressed all-news (last Thursday, 9/13); public radio news/talk (last Friday, 9/14); and sports talk (yesterday, 9/17).
As was the case with those other three overviews, our mainstream CHR analysis is comprised of data from PPM-market facilities that rank in the top 20 (6+, August 2018).
Nielsen Audio only releases audience estimates for facilities that subscribe to its services. Owing to that reason, ratings stats in this exclusive mainstream CHR breakdown are limited to stations that pay Nielsen Audio for its data.
The company’s August 2018 ratings period covered July 19 – August 15.
