LOS ANGELES — An overview of news stations puts into motion our thorough four-part series of July 2020 ratings summaries.
For openers, precisely half our news stations experience erosion (6+), in back-to-back survey periods (May 2020 – June 2020/June 2020 – July 2020).
Entercom owns all but three stations listed in this format analysis.
Non-Entercom operations in this report are iHeartMedia Boston’s WBZ-AM (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.
Up next: July 2020 results for sports talk; adult hits; and then, the comprehensive news/talk overview; email managing editor Mike Kinosian at Kinosian@TALKERS.com
