Liberal talk radio catching on in Albuquerque

Joe Monahan's blog posted the other day (link) some information on the "Arbitron" ratings for radio stations in Albuquerque. Arbitron surveys radio listeners and analyzes the percentage of radio listeners listening to particular stations. (link)

Joe correctly noted that KKOB talk radio is # 1 in Albuquerque and liberal talker KABQ 1350 AM is a surprising #2 in the talk radio market. KABQ features national shows like Al Franken and Randi Rhodes.

But looking deeper into the numbers you find that KKOB lost some listeners over the last few months while KABQ has doubled its listenership since the winter. Pretty interesting, one has to wonder what liberal listeners were tuning into before KABQ came along.

Sadly, I think that many of us were listening to conservative talk. Not liking it or believing it, mind you. Just listening. And then yelling at the radio and changing the station and then (ultimately) going back because KUNM's non-talk programming is so not talk.
