From where I sit On The Kowch, it came as no surprise that ratings in November, 2013 for talk radio stations in Toronto were up because of Mayor Rob Ford’s Crack Smoking Scandal. The Fall PPM ratings were released on December 5, 2013 and showed big rating increases for Toronto’s four news and talk radio stations at the height of the scandal.
From where I sit On The Kowch, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has proven what I’ve been saying for a long time. AM radio isn’t dead. We just gotta give people a reason to listen. On Sunday, November 3, 2013 Newstalk 1010, 680 News and TALK640 did just that with a little help from Toronto’s embattled Mayor Rob Ford. In the process, he turned a normally quiet Sunday into a great day for talk radio.
