September 2018 PPM Analysis: News/Talk

| October 16, 2018

Los Angeles – The fourth and final installment of our special feature summary of September 2018 ratings overviews deals with (commercial, English-language) news/talk outlets.

All-news was addressed last Thursday (10/11); sports talk last Friday (10/12); and hot AC yesterday (10/15).

In order to be included in this analysis, a PPM-market (commercial, English-language) news/talk facility had to chalk up at least a .5 (6+) in the September 2018 ratings period, which covered August 16  – September 12.

Added this month to the news/talk overview is a chart detailing the format’s strongest-to-softest PPM-markets by 6+ AQH share.

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.
