WBBM-AM surged past WGN to finish first, with WDRV down a bit to tie for fourth. WOJO and WKSC just keeps on rising, while WGCI went up a tick, keeping it off the loser’s list. The Score (WSCR) smoked ESPN 1000 (WMVP), though the key male demos will proabably show them a lot closer.
Despite an uptick for one of Nine-FM’s signals (WRZA-FM), the ax swung and Nine-FM is in radio heaven – or hell. Another station that can’t get arrested (Power 92) finished a pathetic 30th, the lowest-rated powerful stick on the dial.
Among 25-54 (6 a.m. to midnight only):
WDRV-FM finished first in the key demo, but second in the cume, behind all-news WBBM. With The Mix and WLS-FM dropping a bit in the demo, it knocked them from the winner’s list to honorable mention, but still a good performance. The Loop did well, finishing sixth. V103 also had a good month, leaping three notches to #5.
On the flipside, Fresh 105.9 dropped from 13th to 16th place, Jack dropped from 18th to 20th, Love FM slid from 14th to 17th, while WNUA didn’t show up in the top 20.
