Classical KUSC was the top-ranked public radio station in the country during the spring quarter, according to the latest national ratings released by the Arbitron company.
During the spring quarter (April 2-June 24), KUSC had more listeners (age 6 and older) than any other public radio station in the United States.
It is the first time KUSC has beaten WNYC and KQED, the National Public Radio news stations in New York City and San Francisco.
According to Arbitron’s Portable People Meter ratings, KUSC attracted an average of 737,000 listeners per week from 6 a.m. to midnight Monday through Sunday compared to WNYC (721,500) and KQED (704,300).
Listeners who use a Portable People Meter carry a pager-size device that automatically logs radio listening.
