Syracuse Spring Ratings Report!
By KC Chief Joe

The Syracuse newspapers are reporting that Howard is 4th overall in the recent Spring ratings. He is beating the "Big Mike & Kathy" show on Y94-FM, which is something of an achievement. Unfortunately, the morning duo who copied all of Howard's bits, "Ted & Amy" in the morning on WNTQ-FM, are still beating him. And what's worse, they (WNTQ-FM) are owned by the same people who own WAQX, Howard's station. .

But the good news is that WSYR-AM, who had the #1 overall morning show, got rid of their popular drive time host, with no reason given what-so-ever, so we may see big changes come the end of summer for the summer ratings.

Don Imus has shown up in town also. He is now on WHEN-AM, one of the worst stations in town. It will be interesting to see if Imus causes a blip or not in the next ratings book.


First are the morning drive time

ratings, then the overall ratings of the stations....
