The Morning Show Shuffle• On February 25, Clear Channel moved the syndicated “Bobby Bones Show” from KSLZ to KSD and replaced the locally- produced, highly-regarded, and highly-rated “Mason and Remy Show.”• “Mason and Remy” on KSD were favorites of advertisers and listeners• KSLZ replaced the syndicated “Bobby Bones Show” with the New York-based syndicated “Elvis Duran in the Morning”• At the time of the move, both shows were top 5 in the rankings in their target demographics – March Week #1 was UGLY for Z107

The Demise of Sports Radio • Sports radio is St. Louis is very episodic. • It’s not an everyday, must listen. • Only when there’s a big local event, do you see listening “pop.” • Also, sports radio competes with “New Media” all day • The casual sports fan can be found on rock stations every day. • Media Strategy: Buy it like a big TV event during the weeks of the Super Bowl or Opening Day
The Demise of Sports Radio • When LeBron James left Cleveland and took his talents to Miami, the Cavs never recovered • WXOS will be in a similar situation replacing Bernie • He was must listen radio for more than just the hard core sports fans. • He was intelligent, well- spoken, and opinionated. • He brought more than the “Joe Jerseywearers” and “Steve the Statgeeks” to WXOS – replacing that will be difficult
The Demise of Sports Radio • The Man • The Woman • The End – spend no time, energy, or oxygen on this other than be aware of its presence
Urban Radio Warfare • Majic 100.3 has flipped formats to go right after Hot 104.1 • WHHL has shown strong growth since Majic migrated to 100.3 since “The Brew” went FLAT • This has no affect on KSHE-95 except in certain “ranker buys”
What has changed since Dec-Jan-Feb 11-12 v. Dec-Jan-Feb 12-13?1 – KSHE is #1 and not #11. Our share and average rating hasnearly doubled.2 – WARH’s cume, average rating, and share have dropped almost10%.3 – Joy is a great feeling, yet you can’t buy advertising on it.4 – WIL was #2 one year ago. Today, it’s in a tie for 5th and hasseen a 17% drop in cume.5 – KIHT was a top 4 station one year ago.6 – KYKY is steady as she goes.7 – KEZK was 6th and is now 9th with an 11% drop in cume. Adults, 25-54, 6a-7p M-F
What has changed since Dec-Jan-Feb 11-12 v. Dec-Jan-Feb 12-13?8 – KSD is now 4 vs. in 6th last year. It’s cume is down 7% year-over-year. Also, the ratings are almost not vaild as they have a new, talk-based morning show that loves to yak.9 – KSLZ has seen a cume drop, yet is pretty steady. Again with theswitch in AM Shows, these ratings are almost not valid to predictfuture performance unless the station guarantees points.10 – KFTK’s share has increased11 – WXOS has gone from a .6 average rating to a .3 and had a 25%loss of cume. There’s been a lot of hand-wringing in the sports radio community, yet the numbers show less listening is real as WXOS goes from #9 one year ago to #16.
What has changed since Dec-Jan-Feb 11-12 v. Dec-Jan-Feb 12-13?12 – KMJM has a similar story to WXOS as it has lost half itsaudience. This is probably because of the switch of frequencies onKSHE’s 45th birthday. It’s audience didn’t switch with them.13 – KPNT is up in average rating, cume, and share.14 – WHHL is also a big winner as its share goes from a 3.8 to a 6.0.15 – KMOX looks at a loss of cume, yet moves up on the rank to 14.
