Franken's Ratings Plummet....Again
I've had a number of email exchanges and blog postings challenging my assertion that Franken's audience is diminishing.
"hey, Air America is on 70 stations!"
Wow, a whole 70. And just think, he's been on the air for a year and half.
Franken opened today's show by stating that his audience is growing, and that he has over 1 million listeners. Now there is no way for me to verify or confirm those numbers. But I was able to copy/paste this paragraph from yesterday's Washington Post about Franken's ratings in the very liberal Washington DC:
Air America, the liberal talk network carried on WWRC-AM (1260), went from bad to nonexistent. After WWRC recorded a mere fraction of a rating point in the spring with syndicated shows from the likes of lefty talkers Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo and Stephanie Miller, Arbitron couldn't detect a measurable listenership for the station this time around.
