  1. KYW: Number one in share. Number 10 in cume. Very curious. All news stations are supposed to make up for short TSL with big cume to get their share. Maybe some people are listening two, three, four times a day. Or maybe they hang around for more than 22 minutes following the motto on James Bond’s family crest: “The World is not Enough.” Or maybe some people just use KYW as white noise like others use B101.
