Ratings, Spring 1985


Ratings, Spring 1985


Box 8 Folder 33: "OK, this is a, in folder 33, this is a listing from the spring of 1985, the comparative ratings of JLD, AGG, ATV, and ENN FM. And WJLD was holding its share. Of course, WENN FM had long since run away with the ratings. They were all getting a piece of it. WATV was very very light, very thin. WAGG, its ratings are pretty much the way they are right now. They just haven’t wavered at all. WAGG and WATV were day timers so they went off the air at sundown. But JLD had some really strong ratings in 1985. Jimmy Lawson was morning drive and apparently very popular. Weldon Clark was extremely popular in the evening as a gospel jock. These are hand written, so obviously copied from some Arbitron listing. 1985. From the WJLD files."
