KGO Still Sitting Pretty In "Beauty Pageant"

Your trophy, gentlemenSeemingly etched permanently atop the local ratings, news/talk grand champion KGO/810 remains at #1 in the Spring Arbitron numbers for all listeners (age 12+) in the San Francisco market.

Despite slipping from a 6.3 in Winter, KGO still posted a very respectable 5.6, giving the venerable station a healthy cushion between itself and #2 KOIT/96.5 (4.5). KMEL/106.1 (3.9) grabbed third, while KSOL/98.9 & 99.1 (3.8) leapfrogged from way down the list into the fourth position, up from a 2.6 Winter book.

KCBS/740 and KDFC/102.1, both of whom posted identical 3.9 marks in Winter, tied for fifth overall with matching 3.6 books. The seventh spot is occupied by KSFO/560 (3.2), with KBLX/102.9 and Wild 94.9 (KYLD) tied for eighth with 3.1 apiece.

Rounding out the top ten was KKSF/103.7 (2.9).

The rest of the list includes KFOG, 98.1 Kiss and the KNBR 680/1050 tandem (2.8 each), Star 101.3 and 107.7 The Bone (2.6 each), KFRC and KRZZ (2.5 each), Alice@97.3 (2.3), KBRG, Live 105, KSJO and KVVZ/KVVF (1.6 each), KRTY (1.4), KNEW (1.3), 98.5 K-Fox (1.2) and KMAX (1.1).

If your favorite station wasn't listed here, it means you weren't listening hard enough. Better luck next time.
