The Fall 2014 radio ratings are out, and we’ve crunched the numbers to come up with some graphs to illustrate what people are listening to. These numbers include the entire demographic - all ages, men and women.
(For all of the graphs below, each station is ranked by their share, defined as “the estimated total hours tuned to that station expressed as a percentage of total hours tuned to all radio”. These numbers include all listeners ages 12 and up, Monday to Sunday from 5:00am to 1:00am, measured between September 1 and October 26, 2014. ( Full data is available here from Numeris (PDF), and you can find previous charts on our blog under the keyword “ radio “.)
College/university stations aren’t listed here because they don’t participate in the ratings.

Here’s a comparison of Ottawa’s talk radio stations.
Bob FM, which recently switched to a country format, actually went up in the ratings this fall. Both Hot and Jump both had big jumps while Kiss and Majic are down.
Meanwhile, Chez and Live both lost some of their share. Dawg, which strictly speaking is blues, not rock, went up a bit.
