    The quirky talk radio trade mag. Check the Talk Radio Research Project- it's not very scientific, but places on the top 15 talkers list (scroll down to Talk Radio Audiences By Size)) are as hotly contested as Emmys (and mean just about as much).

right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

Ouch, I stopped the KIRO-FM twich 'cause it went all crackley on me and I'm on the east hill. Didn't think everyone left the party. I kinda listen to KWJZ also...I wonder how long they will take to get out of that tank...Hey I don't see KTPK, do they show up in top 100?

Cinco

There seems to have been a hoax perpetrated on radio listers and advertisers. It was that talk radio is all there is to radio.

The cold, hard accuracy of the PPMs is refreshing. Maybe if radio pays attention to the listeners, the lock talk has on the radio, particularly syndicated right wing talk, will be broken.

We can all get back to our soft bread & easy-listening circuses.

This is an eye-opener. I thought KIRO after it survived Entercom would endure at the head of the line.

DORI will be going Zero-G on June 28th !

tjtaygee

oops - don't see KPTK on there anywhere...

love me some stephanie miller :( hope that show doesn't go away...

Interesting because LTR just ran a piece on how soft rock/jazz is a dying market! I think a lot of people are burned out on politics for awhile, probably a long while, and just want to let their brains coast to music.

oh my god

Hmm, perhaps we won't need the Fairness Doctrine after all, Muuahahaha ;)

I like to listen in while Ross is on but the signal went weak. So I turned on my scanner.

" I think a lot of people are burned out on politics for awhile, probably a long while, and just want to let their brains coast to music." - That nailed it for me, I'm tired of all the bashing by both sides.

KIRO-AM is still #1 in overall 12+ ratings:

Peaklimiter

mrogi- those are the Winter 09 book before the station flipped. The new 12+ numbers haven't been released yet. Neither KIRO AM nor FM will be #1. They'll be closer to the 25-54 that are posted here.

I'm a bit surprised that apparently KVI is off-the-charts in both recaps. What do you suppose that will do to Wilbur's contract renewal.

Where do twelve-year-olds get money?

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
