Hot-talker Howard Stern reclaimed the kingdom in the key morning drive-time slot for KLSX-FM (97.1), but Spanish-language KLAX-FM (97.9), the relative new kid on the radio block, retained its lead in the overall rankings for the third quarter in a row, according to Arbitron ratings released Wednesday. Although it maintained the No. 1 position, KLAX slipped substantially, from a 7.2 share of the audience during the winter quarter to 5.7% for the spring quarter that ended June 23.
