KSBJ/Houston grabs the #1 spot in the market for the 2nd time this year. In the Nielsen MAR PPM. KSBJ trends 7.3-7.7-7.3 (AQH Share Persons 6+ Mon-Sun 6am-mid) to land on top in H-Town. Today in the May release KSBJ shot up more than 2 points to 9.6 AQH.

KSBJ Consultant John Frost told HisAir, “Ratings success is not the litmus test for success in our format.   But what drives that success is foundational.   Clear vision and purpose,  a talented and motivated group of the right people with the right hearts, leadership suppling the investment to strengthen the product and invite new listeners in.   KSBJ, uniquely, has built a brand on Texas values.  They know their audience and they know how to reflect those beliefs and values.   A new listener can tune into KSBJ and say, “That’s me!”
