LOS ANGELES — A thorough analysis of news stations initiates our three-part series of October 2020 ratings summaries.
The following scoreboards are comprised of news operations that rank in the top 20 (6+) in any of the 48 PPM-markets during the October 2020 ratings period (September 10 – October 7).
Similar to what we witnessed this time last month when 69% of our sample experienced September 2019 – September 2020 growth, 63% of news panelists chalk up October 2019 – October 2020 improvement.
Ratings stats in this exclusive analysis are limited to stations paying Nielsen Audio for its data.
Up next: October 2020 results for sports talk; and then, the comprehensive news/talk overview; email managing editor Mike Kinosian at Kinosian@TALKERS.com.
