Funny, ESPN has no listeners? What makes you say that? Because Ryner tells you that? PLEASE...show me the ratings...and if you have them that just proves that you work for the Ticket.
Ticket- guy Talk
So let me get this straight, if anyone here has access to Arbitron ratings, that's proof that they work for the Ticket? Ooooookay....
And he's wrong. ESPN has listeners. Just not that many of them. And no where near what KTCK has. And what's pitiful about that is that at least Russ MArtin can slice and dice ratings and claim that he's #1 in some subgroup (Men 18-34 IIRC)...
While ESPN is losing in every demo, every daypart. Mornings, middays, PM drive, nights. Their a** is being kicked.
12+, Men 18+, Men 25-54, PERSONS 25-54, you name it, KTCK is beating ESPN like a red headed step child.
And while I don't work there, I wish I did. It would be nice to work for a station where (even with their 'problems' (named Greggo) ) you are kicking the crap out of the market in ratings, revenue, national recognition, etc...
Because that might be the problem Tripp, you want "sports". I want entertaining radio. And since the stations aren't competing in a sports trivia contest, or a journalism contest to see who has teh better coverage, it doesn't really matter who covers 'sports' better. What matters is who provides the most entertaining radio. Who draws the bigger audience. Who makes the most money.
And the winner, hands down, in all those categorys? As i heard it referred to today, Sport 13 AM 10.
