Noteworthy numbers in today’s markets include:

  • The start of the NFL season usually helps Sports talkers this time of the year, but it also helps music stations that serve as local flagships for them. Cumulus Media Classic Rock “101 The Fox” Kansas City didn’t need the extra help from Patrick Mahomes, but with the start of the Chiefs season the station rises from a 9.3 to 10.3 to increase its market lead to over two share points. Cumulus Classic Hits 94.9 KCMO-FM holds in second but drops 8.6 to 8.2.
