CJOB barely holding on to top spot on radio dial

  • Print

NEWS-and-talk radio station CJOB is still Winnipeg's favourite radio signal, but only by a hair.

CJOB captured the ears of 12 per cent of Winnipeg radio listeners aged 12 and up in the spring survey conducted by BBM Canada. That's good enough for first place in the local radio market, but only a statistical blip above rival news-talk station CBC Radio One, which earned an 11.7 share.

CJOB has led Winnipeg radio ratings for decades, but earlier this month, it chose not to extend the contract of longtime morning man Hal Anderson. The station is now looking for a new host for its morning time-slot.

According to the BBM Canada survey, here are the 12-and-up numbers for Winnipeg radio stations this spring (with spring 2013 numbers in parentheses):

CJOB-68: 12.0 (12.8)

CBC Radio One: 11.7 (11.1)

QX-104: 9.1 (8.1)

92 CITI FM: 7.9 (6.9)

103.1 Virgin: 7.0 (8.0)

99.9 Bob FM: 6.8 (6.4)

102.3 Clear FM : 6.5 (NA)

FAB 94.3 FM: 5.5 (5.9)

Energy 106: 4.3 (3.9)

Power 97 FM: 4.2 (4.4)

CBC Radio Two: 3.5 (3.1)

TSN 1290: 3.5 (4.3)

99.1 Fresh FM: 2.0 (2.5)

Jewel 101 FM: 1.2 (1.0)

Radio-Canada: 0.5 (NA)
