The ratings at WCKY - Air America's outlet in Cincinnati - are lower than they were a year ago. At the time, WCKY was an oldies station.
Total listeners for Winter 2005: WCKY ranked 19th with a 1.0 share. Last year, they got 1.3. Jerry Springer did slightly better than the other AAR shows.
According to the operations manager for the four Cincy Clear Channel stations: "The radio station isn't performing as good as I'd like to see it... But it's the first (ratings) book and you have to wait a good six months to get a real trend on it. I'm not discouraged by it. AM audiences take a long time to build..."
Details in "Rock music doing better than Springer".
The article also includes the following:
Already, Springer's show has changed. Disappearing from the air after two months is Springer's long-time friend and sidekick Jene Galvin, who was initially an on-air presence. Parks said Galvin now works behind the scenes on the show.
