What's the biggest weekday for radio listening?

0

According to the June 2007 PPM radio ratings in Houston, Friday had the largest average quarter hour radio audience among persons, age 6 and older. Houston-Galveston – June 2007 – Monday-Friday 6AM-Midnight – AQH Persons 6+

Monday 477,300 – Tuesday 489,300 – Wednesday 494,100 – Thursday 497,500 – Friday 518,500

In the PPM system, there is no “first day” of a survey week. Once in the panel, the PPM respondent is asked to carry the meter with them throughout the day, every day for as long as they are in the panel, which can be as long as two years. It’s also interesting to note that the bigger “lift” in Friday listening starts at 3:00pm and peaks in the 10pm to 11pm hour. Words of warning: This is only one month of data from one market. It’s much too soon to draw any general conclusions about what day is the biggest listening day for ALL of radio.


BET's Hot Ghetto Mess Gets Name Change

WE GOT TO DO BETTER

This week, BET will be launching a new series called WE GOT TO DO BETTER, a half-hour video clip show that, at its core, is pure social commentary.

The show’s original title was HOT GHETTO MESS: WE GOT TO DO BETTER. We’ve decided to change the name because we want to highlight the show’s real intent, which is to offer social commentary in a context that sparks dialogue, debate, and most importantly, change.

Additionally, the early misperceptions about the show and its title were diverting attention from the overall original programming strategy we’ve begun implementing at BET Networks – which is to deliver smart, creative shows that explore the full range of the Black experience. Our 2007 slate is the most ambitious and diverse aggregation of Black programming in television history, and it features a wide range of genres – from inspirational shows like EXALTED!, to animated comedy shows like BUFU, to family entertainment like SUNDAY BEST. As we move into the fall season and 2008, you’ll continue to see the increase in the quality, quantity and breadth of shows that we have to offer at BET.
