DUNHAM+COMPANY takes a look at a specific piece of research that comes out each year called The Infinite Dial, released by Edison Research. Primarily, the report is built around digital media consumption in all its different forms. This report first began in 1998 and recently the focus has shifted as new technologies have entered the scene.

In spite of the many challenges 2020 has brought, WCVO/COLUMBUS (104.9 The River) reached 100% in their recent Fall Sharathon. In addition, the event saw their largest pre-event giving and largest challenge fund giving in the station’s history.

“God continues to provide beyond what we would have believed possible,” said Chief Development Officer Dave Stephens, “I’m thankful for our generous listeners, an incredible team at The River, and great support from Vidare Creative as we continue to navigate through a year like none other. I couldn’t have imagined when we canceled the end of our Sharathon in March that we would end our Fall Sharathon way ahead of where we were in 2019.”

Vidare Creative Chief Business Officer Paul Goldsmith added, “We are honored to work with stations like The River. Their hard work and willingness to innovate during this unusual year has made all the difference. We are excited for the future for this ministry and their impact on Central Ohio.”


Nielsen Aug PPM numbers sponsored by Dunham+Company are rolling out this week… Expected today are the latest from Portland, Columbus, Kansas City and more. Go HERE for the Christian Radio Ratings from HisAir.
