WBZ-AM: We’re Number Seven! We’re Number Seven!

Trade magazine Radio Ink has published its first-ever list of the Top 20 News Stations in America.  And local fixture WBZ-AM has landed in the top ten.

Via Pew Research Daily Briefing of Media News:

5146659WTOP IS #1 NEWS STATION IN AMERICA

A panel of news and news/talk experts have named Hubbard Radio’s WTOP top news station in the country in Radio Ink’s first listing of news and news/talk stations. Under the leadership of GM Joel Oxley, Vice President of Programming Jim Farley, and Program Director Laurie Cantillo, WTOP has developed into a news leader in the Washington D.C. market, competing with newspaper outlets like the Washington Post and television news organizations in the nation’s capital. WTOP has also established itself as a digital news leader with nearly 100,000 regular readers at WTOP.com and 60,000 followers on Twitter and 11 full- and part-time digital journalists.

  1. When driving to or through the City, I listen to 880 and 1010 for traffic, flipping back and forth. I find I much prefer WBZ, but I can’t quantify why.
