LOS ANGELES — Each month, we focus on three spoken-word genres and one music-intensive format: A thorough examination of mainstream CHR wraps up our four-part series that has been reviewing August 2019 ratings performances.
As was the case with the three heretofore published overviews of spoken-word formats (all-news, sports talk, and public radio news/talk), our mainstream CHR analysis is comprised of data from PPM-market facilities that rank in the top 20 (August 2019, 6+).
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 2019 ratings period covered July 18 – August 14.
