Air America Idiot Update

The NYC Arbitron Abbattior 07/18/05:

WABC (Rush, Hannity): 3.2; 11th overall

WOR (O’Reilly, Savage): 2.3; 21st overall

WLIB (Air Idiot): 1.0; 24th overall

WABC has been in a bit of a free fall since the summer/fall election frenzy, when they peaked with a 4.5, but you see that 1.0 the Idiots earned? It’s the dead lowest rating they’ve ever received, and by "ever," I mean even when WLIB was catering to a Caribbean niche audience. WOR, on the other hand, is pretty well locked in, numbers-wise. They didn’t really show all that much jump or loss during the whole election buildup/cool down.

Sure, Franken might be slamming out podcasts over at the iTunes store, but since Limbaugh’s podcasts aren’t publicly available (only subscribers signed up for his "24/7" service have access), we’ve no idea what his download numbers are…but I bet they ain’t too impressive; he’s on something like 600 stations, so catching his show is relatively simple anywhere in the country, while Franken is predominately on shitty (signal-wise) little stations on less than 70 outlets, so downloading his show is the only way most of the country could ever hope to hear him, but damn, that number for the NYC market is atrocious. I mean, WNEW-FM, which has devolved from legendary to damn unlistenable, drew double Air Idiot’s number.
