Top Three 2008 Billing Stations Were In L.A.
CC had half the top 10
By Jeffrey Yorke

Clear Channel Communications had half of the nation’s top-10 revenue billing stations in 2008, CBS Radio had three and Bonneville International and Emmis Communications each claimed one.

Five of them -- KFI, KIIS, KPWR, KROQ and KOST -- were in Los Angeles, and four – WCBS, WINS, WHTZ and WLTW -- were in New York. Together, these 10 stations had $521.6 million in revenues, according to BIAfn, the Chantilly, Va. media research firm that collects and analyzes financial data...


BIAFn Top 10 Billing Radio Stations - 2008

KIIS/Los Angeles $66.3 million Clear Channel Communications
KROQ/Los Angeles $56.1 million CBS Radio
KFI/Los Angeles $54.4 million Clear Channel Communications
WLTW/New York $52.6 million Clear Channel Communications
WINS/New York $51.8 million CBS Radio
WTOP/Washington $51.75 million Bonneville International
WHTZ/New York $49.6 million Clear Channel Communications
WCBS/New York $46.7 million CBS Radio
KPWR/Los Angeles $46.3 million Emmis Communications
KOST/Los Angeles $45.7 million Clear Channel Communications



WTOP being here is amazing. I didn't think DC had that much money in it for one radio station...

WJFK used to bill about $35 million per year back in the Stern days. That used to be considered very good for the market.

That result will not shut the nattering nabobs at dcrtv up.
Aircheck? You'd make a great board op.
