But don't despair, wingnuts - TC Talk, now relegated to that vast wasteland of AM radio, is now only a little over 10% behind KTIS-FM, that religious powerhouse.

Or, to look at it another way, Wingnut Talk 1130 now has almost half the listeners of KS95.

The Patriot, another conservative AM, is off more than half from a year ago among all listeners.

Ya, right, like 'minnpost' is 'unbiased', and I have a condo in Baghdad to sell you, real cheap. Minnpost is pure PROPAGANDA, very little of what they produce is based on ANY facts. They are the 'brownshirts' of the dfl party here in MN.

This highlights that the tea party is rapidly losing support all across the country as Americans see the teabageers for what they are - pawns of corporate America.

Wow, where did you learn to read?

I know. Libs have trouble digesting facts, don't they?

Even Lefite David Brauer, the author of the article, said: "The former K-Talk, now Twin Cities NewsTalk, wasn't hurt either. The right-wing station, which swapped dial positions in August, is down a bit from a summer spike, but the trend is still up."

----------

What is interesting is the fact that that horrible showing by the Right Wing Talk Station is ONLY SIX TIMES GREATER than the Leftie station owned by Janet Robert and her slug of a hubby, Bill Luther.

Wingnut radio is SIX TIMES better than Loser Leftie crapola? Whoodathunkit?

Yeah, that doesn't play well with the lefties does it.

Big deal. MPR has 12% fewer listeners than they did 2 years ago. At the same time, the former KTLK has 44% more listeners than they had in May 2009.

I guess that means MPR will soon have 25% less listeners than the former KTLK, right?

Why is it that lefties are always looking for hardship in others in order to boost their own dismal prospects?

Irish, just so you know, the person you replied to is not me. I have refrained from this thread because the OP did not make a point even though he tried. I have probably forgotten more about the Arbitron than he knows about it since I've been in the media business for decades. Ask the OP about the AQH for each station he mentioned and why that is important to the rates?

Hell Wade, I knew that wasn't you.

Been a long time since I have been interested in the media shares for anything other than a passing glance. But you did catch my eye with something ... what the hell is an AQH and why is that important?

By the way, not sure if thecurrent Wade imposter is the same one that has popped up on here a few times in the past month, but you hit the big leagues, my friend. When they start stealing your ID and making up crapola about you, you have made an impact upon them. Congrats to you.

Average Quarter Hour. It means how long the listeners a station has listen at a stretch. It increases the likelyhood that a listener will actually hear an advertiser's commercial because they are listening for longer periods of time. Some stations have loyal listeners so their AQH is bigger. Music stations usually have a lower AQH because if a listener does not like a song they change stations. Stations such as KFXN FM and KTCN tend to have more loyal listeners that never change the dial. WCCO used to be the king of the AQH until their slide started about 20 years ago. Don't get me wrong, the total number of listeners is still the most important, it's just that the OP of this thread really did not have a point to make except an attempt to bait others into an argument where none really existed. He was stating facts. One fact he failed to mention is the lib talk KTNF is right down there with the Patriot. KTNF will never get ratings any better than they are now because the lib talk in this town is MPR.

By the way, I read your thread about screen names. On which thread was the problem with RS86 occurring? I missed it because since last summer when SPPP dropped their Topix affiliation I lost most of my interest here. I used to post under a few names, depending on the subject of the thread, always the name of a character from a film but I have been using the current one for a long time.(It's amazing the number of people that think it is my real life name). Someone hijacked it for quite some time about a year ago so I switched it up. I do miss the old days when there was a lot more banter. Hell, I even miss Mrs. R.

Fascinating info. Thanks for sharing.

There were a few dust ups with RS86 and the new RS86. To be honest, it was funny to follow at the start. The orig guy was spitting nails when the new one regsitered the name. However, as with too many things on here, it got ugly after a bit - each was trying to out-tough the other one.

I found the start of the fight in the thread titled "We are not hiring until Obama is gone" and I think they also got into it in the Class Warfare thread - but am not 100% sure on that one.

It appears that both are gone for now. Perhaps Admin at Topix is actually doing their job for a change.

Mrs R was quite the character, wasn't she? There are a lot of former contributors here that were interesting to interact with.

Yet you choose to encourage morons and degrade quality. It is a conundrum.

Fake Tank and Fake Goose are the same poster IMO. Start a liberal biased thread to occupy the time of conservatives. Then respond with nonsense attacks when you can't actually argue your original point.

You know what? It is real easy to make acusations against others. Even someone of your limited mental capacity can bring accusations forth.

It takes a real man to provide proof. I guess that leaves you out, doesn't it?
