Quick Takes

KUSC is tops in public radio

September 04, 2009|Lee Margulies

L.A. classical music outlet KUSC-FM (91.5) had the largest audience of any public radio station in the country last spring.

The USC-operated station this week released Arbitron ratings figures compiled by the Radio Research Consortium showing that an average of 737,000 people tuned in for at least five minutes each week between April 2 and June 24, tops among all public radio outlets.

Runner-up WNYC-FM in New York averaged 721,500 and San Francisco's KQED-FM had 704,300. Pasadena-based KPCC-FM (89.3) was fifth, with 548,600.

But just for perspective, this is still classical music: In the most recent Arbitron ratings for the L.A.-Orange County market, covering July, KUSC ranked 28th overall in weekly listeners, with 703,200. Top-rated KIIS-FM (102.7), with its Top 40 format, averaged 3,955,500.
