DEFINITIONS:

(12+) = All listeners, male and female, over the age of 12. The 12+ audience is the largest due to the fact that it contains all the other demographics combined.

(Demographics) = Characteristics of a population. (In radio)> A specific group of people. (Example) Men 18-54, Women 25-54, etc...

(Rating Point) = In TV a rating point is worth approximately 964,000 viewers nationally. A rating point's value in radio is usually less as aposed to TV's and increases and decreases based on a cities or regions listening or viewing population. If a TV show gets a 25.5 rating nationally than approx. 24 million people watched the program. Remember, point values vary from city to city and from TV to radio. If Howard gets a 7.0 in NY, it doesn't mean 6 million listeners, it's more like 1.2 to 1.5 million listeners at any given time.

(Share) = A percentage of the possible listening audience. (Example) If Howard's got an 18 share of men in Dallas, that means 18% of all men in the listening area with their radios on, are listening to Howard and KEGL. Better said, (1) in (5.5) men who listen to the radio in the morning in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area are Stern fans.
