Arbitron only publicly releases the numbers of stations that are subscribers to their service. Any non-subscriber data is only available to subscribing stations. The July ratings period ran from July 19 to August 15.

Other numbers of note:

A big Classic Rock shift in Raleigh/Durham as Curtis Media’s “Radio 96.1” WBBB rises 4.8 to 6.3. Meanwhile Clear Channel’s “100.7 The River” WRVA-FM falls 4.6 to 3.4.

The demise of Classic Hits 97.1 WRQQ Nashville seems to have helped both Variety Hits “96.3 Jack-FM” WCJK and Classic Rock “105.9 The Rock” WNRQ rise 1.1 each. Jack goes 4.7 to 5.8, while WNRQ goes 7.8 to 8.7.
