LOS ANGELES — A comprehensive news/talk analysis concludes our four-part series of “Holiday” 2019 overviews.
Included in this thorough synopsis are all commercial, English-language news/talk outlets (including online streams, if applicable) that appeared in any of Nielsen Audio’s 48 PPM-markets (“Holiday” 2019).
Unless otherwise noted, information for each station and stream was factored into all of our highlighted charts.
Spoiler Alert: In a sweep dominated by FM outlets playing wall-to-wall Christmas music (please see yesterday’s adult contemporary summary), news/talk stations are either down or flat in more than eight of ten cases (84%, December 2019 – “Holiday” 2019, 6+).
