Moneyball National Chart

Chart Explain 12/9/19

It’s a straight forward week with Christmas music pulling down most songs as we head deeper into the Christmas holiday.  With that being said, these four songs stick out most in this final week of Moneyball for 2019:

Zach Williams ‘Rescue Story,’ continues to rise, now up to #4, with the mainstays, Lauren Daigle, Casting Crowns and Jeremy Camp all sticking it out at 1, 2 and 3. Riley Clemmons “Fighting for Me,’ climbs impressively from 9 to 6, while We The Kingdom ‘Holy Water,’ presses through and Matthew West “The God Who Stays,’ jumps 5 spaces.

Moneyball will resume second week back in January.  Thank you for utilizing this chart as a factor towards building a better radio station.  

May you be blessed this Holiday season.  We look forward to catching up with you in 2020.

Blessings and great hope in this new year… Sincerely Rob Wagman


The Moneyball Chart Methodology

Instead of one chart that focuses specifically on airplay, the Moneyball Chart combines airplay with sales, streaming and research for the purpose of finding the Momentum in Music, which is most times the differentiator on songs that stall and the ones that continue to chug along.

The Moneyball Chart is created based on a points system, where each column of information can add a maximum of up to 10 points for that column, with the points from each column adding to the overall totals.

The Moneyball Chart is an indicator of songs that are working; songs that are bearing fruit and therefore the Moneyball Chart, may have drastic differences from the charts you have become accustom to, revealing some artists and titles in a higher position much earlier than they show up on the airplay charts, and also, often songs that have moved to recurrent on most of our playlists continue to show fruit indicating that we may have retired those titles too early.

The Moneyball system works Nationally, or locally, so if you are interested in seeing what this information looks like specific to your station, specific to your market and your competitive situation, let us create a custom sample for your station specifically.  Email Rob Wagman [email protected]
