KOMO was no. 2 with 4.9% share of the listenership. That is very good and reflects, we're told, that they ruled the morning. Fisher folded the KVI talk format and turned it over to Bad Nostalgic Hits of the Pleistocene in the November. Did all those KVI-ers come home to Jesus and follow John Carlson (m-f, 3-6p) on KOMO?
KOMO trailed KRWM which playing Xmas music which got an amazing 7.9% (so rare to see a share that high anymore).
KIRO FM came in at 5th place. It is said that while KOMO won mornings, Ron and Don took the afternoon drive.
KUOW, the public radio leader never changes its programmng despite its calcification. Obviously that's a good thing, because they always come fairly high without ever even lifting a finger much less firing anybody. This month they came in at 8th place with a 4.2.
KTTH, the last surviving rihght-wing talk station is in a bit of a transition. Bonneville has been busy adding syndicated right-wingers and subtracting live & local talk. The December book stayed pretty much the same...that is to say bad... 21st in the mrket with a 2.7 share. Let's see what magic Sean Hannity can bring. KTTH's last live talker, Dave Boze (m-f, 3-4p) is trodding through his single hour each day distracted and we can't tell: is it boredom or depression?
Poor l' KVI, given up for dead by Fisher, got even worse numbers than they did when they were spending money on the station - It's 36th in the market,going from a 1.4 to a 0.3 share. Ouch. Anybody wanna buy a radio station?
