LOS ANGELES —  A detailed look at public radio news/talk stations continues our comprehensive four-part March 2020 ratings summary.

Breakouts shown here consist of data from public radio news/talk facilities that rank in the top 20 (6+) in any PPM-market during the March 2020 sweep (February 27 – March 25).

Coronavirus-Related Note: Whereas six of seven of our qualifying panelists either improve (79%) or remain steady (7%) month-to-month, two of every five are down (41%) year-to-year.

Nielsen Audio only releases audience estimates for stations subscribing to its services.

As a result, ratings stats in this analysis are limited to facilities paying that company for its information.
