SF Arbitrends: It's All About KGO...Again!

The month of May was again merry for Disney news/talk powerhouse KGO-810, as Bay Area listeners 12 years old and older tuned into the heritage station more than any other. Arbitron trends numbers released this afternoon reveal that KGO's closest competitor, Bonneville AC simulcast KOIT-AM 1260/FM 96.5 is more than two full points behind in second place.

Clear Channel Urban Top 40 KMEL-106.1 holds in third, with KSFO-560 inching up to fourth and passing KCBS-740, which drops slightly to fifth. Smooth Jazz KKSF-103.7 and Classical KDFC-102.1 swap ranks, finishing 6th and 7th respectively; and three stations with urban leanings round out the top ten: AC KISQ-98.1; Hip-Hop KYLD-94.9; and AC KBLX-102.9.

Notable: continuing lackluster performances by KIOI-"Star" 101.3, "Alice" KLLC-97.3, and country KZBR-95.7 "The Bear." Each has failed to make significant gains in the last year. And the much touted "Energy 92.7" has settled, albeit with a monster hook and a killer beat, in last place.
