Chicago Radio Ratings

From Tom Taylor's column this morning...

Chicago keeps all-news WBBM/WCFS and urban AC “V103” in a tight tango at #1-#2. CBS-owned WBBM moves 5.8-5.8-6.1 and iHeart’s WVAZ shows 6.1-5.6-6.0. ’BBM is #1 mornings and middays, while V103 is #1 afternoons and weekends, and second middays and nights. Third place total-week is Hubbard hot AC “Mix” WTMX (5.0-4.9-5.5, and second in mornings with Eric & Kathy). Fourth is iHeart CHR “Kiss” WKSC (4.4-4.6-4.5), just ahead of urban sister WGCI (3.5-4.0-4.3). According to Chris Huff, the 4.3 share is WGCI’s best since February 2014. One reason why – WGCI’s #1 at night (though tied for eleventh in morning drive). Tribune’s talk WGN is #6 (3.6-3.9-3.8, and third in mornings). CBS sports “Score” WSCR has the Cubs (4.1-4.0-3.7). The country field is CBS Radio’s “US99” WUSN (reimaged after this book ended, and moving 2.6-3.0-2.9) versus iHeart’s “Big” WEBG (2.3-2.4-2.4). CHR “Kiss” pulls the highest cume at 2,421,000.
