TRIBE FLAGSHIP STAKES CLAIM ON NO. 1 SPORTS RADIO STATION
Published February 16, 1996
Cleveland's WKBR-AM all-sports radio station is touting itself as the "No. 1 all-sports radio station in America," citing Arbitron ratings for Fall '95. During the time, which included the baseball playoffs and World Series, 4.9% of the total Cleveland audience over age 12 that listens to radio at least 15 minutes a day between 6:00am and midnight tuned into the Indians flagship. The rating was a full point higher than the next all- sports station. Second was KNBR-San Francisco 3.9; WEEI-Boston at 3.3; WIP-Philadelphia 3.2; WFAN-New York 2.9 (THE SPORTING NEWS, 2/19 issue).
