With the Boys of Summer back on the field, Katz Media Group is out with a new study about how Major League Baseball flagship radio stations reach “some of the most engaged and lucrative audiences in all of baseball.”
The economic pressures being faced by commercial radio can be measured in a lot of ways, but one of the clearest is the number of stations on the air. The latest census from the Federal Communications Commission shows that not only are some operators simply pulling the plug on long-struggling AM stations, but the number of commercial FMs is also trending downward.
It’s a 1,000-watt AM radio station with 1 tower serving tiny Livingston, Montana. Previous owners include iHeartMedia predecessor Clear Channel, Marathon Media, and GAPWEST Broadcasting, a predecessor to its current owner, Townsquare Media.
