LOS ANGELES — Our comprehensive four-part series of December 2019 ratings recaps begins with an overview of all-news stations.

The following scoreboards reflect data from all-news properties that appear in the top 20 (6+) in December 2019, a sweep that covered November 7 – December 4.

All but three stations listed in this format synopsis are Entercom-owned properties.

Non-Entercom all-news operations in this report are iHeartMedia’s WBZ-AM, Boston (also listed in Providence); Hubbard Broadcasting Washington, DC’s WTOP-FM; and Sinclair Broadcast Group Seattle’s KOMO.

Ratings stats in this exclusive analysis are limited to stations paying Nielsen Audio for its data.
