Chicago Radio Ratings

From Tom Taylor's NOW Column this morning...

AC/Christmas WLIT (iHeart) scored a 14.2 share a year ago in this book, and it nearly repeats that this time (3.3-6.6-13.9). It wins every daypart except mornings. #2 station for the total week (and morning drive champ) is CBS all-news WBBM/WCFS (5.9-7.0-6.8), and third is iHeart’s urban AC “V103” WVAZ (6.0-6.1-5.8). Quite a holiday-induced drop for Hubbard’s fourth-place hot AC “Mix” WTMX (5.4-4.7-4.2). Fifth is iHeart’s urban WGCI (3.3-3.2-3.5). The country rivals are tied-for-thirteenth “US 99.5” WUSN (CBS) going 2.8-3.0-2.3. and iHeart’s “Big” WEBG (2.0-1.8-1.7). In talk, the players include Tribune’s talk WGN (3.6-3.8-3.3) and Cumulus-owned talk WLS (1.8-1.6-1.6). In classic hits, Cumulus WLS-FM is steady (2.8-2.8-2.8) versus CBS WJMK (3.3-2.9-2.3). CBS all-sports “Score” WSCR (2.2-2.2-2.0) tops Disney-owned/ESPN-run WMVP (2.5-2.0-1.9). WLIT’s market-leading weekly cume averages 3,636,500.
