Ratings

It seems that the March ratings are categorized by owner. The top 3 are the usual iHeart suspects of WDVE (102.5), WWSW (94.5) and WKST (96.1). Steel City Media’s WRRK (96.9) ties with the aforementioned WKST. Renda’s WSHH (99.7) follows as it levels out from its Holiday Book. Then come the CBS stations – all […]
