All figures in Millions.

Most stations have dropped from the revenues posted in 2004, especially those at the top. Some like WFAN from the loss of Imus and WXRK from the loss of Howard Stern were substantial. A few that have risen over the past five years include Clear Channel’s CHR Z100, Inner City’s Urban WBLS, and CBS’ Fresh 102.7 as it has slowly risen from the dead.
