AM Radio is Alive and Kicking

4-13-2012

It's not dead yet. Five of the top ten billing radio stations in 2011 were parked on that static-ridden, antique-sounding much maligned AM dial that many people have been trying to claim is dead and gone. Hold off on the funeral folks. Of the $477 million taken in by the top ten, $226 million came from successfully programmed AM stations. Four of the five were news or news/talk and the other was sports-talker WFAN in New York. When you add in WTOP-FM, six of the top ten billing stations came from the spoken word format.

AM is not dead, but it need some re programing. Right now it is all "Talk Radio" and music. I would like to see some entertainment shows like we had in the 30's, 40's and early 50's. Not just political talk and bad music. Programs with a story line and something to hold your attention.

WFAN is great; but if you removed the buffoons (conservative talk radio) AM would be in the ICU
