    but, for good or ill, (I say ill) fortunes turn on it.

    how much depends on signal strength?
    Coverage maps do matter, but you gotta show the numbers to match.
    would those other stations get those high ratings if people weren't used to tuning them in for traffic and weather and football and basketball?
    Probably. Stations are rated daypart by daypart. You can see what shows perform and which one's don't.
    how many other CC stations with similar ratings get a pass. and why? because they're innocuous?
    NO format with five or six consecutive books with 1 shares across the board gets a pass, anywhere, ever.

      i'd be surprised if there weren't stations seen as serving very particular markets that advertisers would like to target.

      in the case of KPOJ, local progressives who use radio advertising or local businesses serving 'progressives'

      and compare with loss of advertisers all those liimbaugh stations are dealing with

    •  arbitron ratings need to be politically weighed (0+ / 0-)

      in talk radio, in a blue state, in a blue town, for advertising purposes, a high arbitron rating for a limbaugh station would have to be weighed downward considering what richard meyers and all the other activists have done to them.
