LOS ANGELES — Our four-part series of November 2018 ratings recaps begins with an analysis of all-news properties.
The following scoreboards reflect data from all-news stations that appear in the top 20 (6+) in November 2018, a ratings period that covered October 11 – November 7.
Among qualifying all-news facilities, approximately three of every five are either up or even month-to-month (60%, October 2018 – November 2018, 6+).
All but three stations listed here are owned by Entercom. The exceptions are iHeartMedia’s WBZ-AM, Boston (also listed in Providence); WTOP, Washington, DC (Hubbard); and KOMO, Seattle (Sinclair Broadcast Group).
Nielsen Audio only releases audience estimates for facilities that subscribe to its services. As a result, ratings stats in this exclusive analysis are limited to stations that pay Nielsen Audio for its data.
