KNBR, taking clear advantage of the SF Giants euphoria, (and subsequent title), had a big October month and is the top-rated radio station for the second consecutive month in the just-released Arbitrons, (12-plus, PPM)
Knibber posted a 6.1 in the overalls for October, up from its top spot in September. Again, you can attribute much of that to baseball.
KCBS had a slight bump, (5.2), up from a Sept. 5.0. KGO had a modest bump to 2.7, (largely due to its temporary broadcasts of 49ers football).
Here's the entire list.
NOTES: Newstalk 910 seems to have flatlined with a disappointing 0.5 overall. The ClearChannel talkie has remained largely ratings-challenged mostly due to a poor signal...Entercom's FM "The Game", (957TheGame) had a modest bump but still was leaps and bounds behind rival KNBR...KSFO, the conservative talkie, thanks to election season, also had a good month and bumped to the up arrow.
*These ratings, we always remind you, are merely industry numbers --the "beauty contest" results. Advertisers are courted by specific demos and breakdowns. Nevertheless, for KNBR, which at one point a few years back was in the lower top 20, two solid, straight books deserves props.
Yes, you read right: I'm praising KNBR. Stop the presses.
