Something Funky Going On At Seattle’s Monkey
CLEAR CHANNEL Active Rocker KFNK(104.9 THE FUNKY MONKEY)/SEATTLE is rumored to be flipping to something called GEN X 104.9. The rumblings started when CLEAR CHANNEL registered the domain GenX1049.com and GenXSeattle.com, both of which lead to nothing on the web at this point.
Exclusive PPM Analysis October 2010: Seattle
Here is a recap of some select PPM market highlights from OCTOBER 2010, compiled by dmr for ALL ACCESS and powered by XTrends, radio’s #1 PPM and diary analysis tool.
SEATTLE-TACOMA October 2010: The Ladies Make STAR #1
FISHER RADIO Hot AC KPLZ (STAR 101.5) was #1 P6+ in SEATTLE-TACOMA in OCTOBER, buoyed by their only other #1 demo- a big one- W25-54. Tied for #2 P6+ were CBS RADIO Country KMPS and CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Rhythmic KUBE with 4.8.
It’s a battle for WOMEN in SEATTLE with ENTERCOM Alternative KNDD (107.7 THE END) #1 W18-34, CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KBKS #1 W18-49, STAR 101.5 #1 W25-54, and CBS Classic Rocker KZOK #1 W35-64.
CBS Adult Hits KJAQ (96.5 JACK FM) continues an upward trend (see Snapshot Trends below) moving to #1 P25-54 and to #2 P35-64, just behind KZOK.
MORNINGS: What does it say about a market whose #1 MORNING show (P25-54) has nobody on it? JACK-FM has done it, and that probably also explains why KZOK went up to #1 P36-64…. BOB RIVERS left.
