Minneapolis’ Ticket Drops Local Programming
Cumulus Sports trimulcast “105 The Ticket” 105.1 WGVX Lakeville/105.3 Cambridge/105.7 WGVZ Eden Prairie/Minneapolis, MN has dropped its local talk programming.
2-4pm host Bob Sansevere and 4-6pm co-hosts Mike Morris and Ben Holsen are out with the change, which sees the station go to the CBS Sports Radio Network programming around the clock. Program Director Scott Jameson told the St. Paul Pioneer-Press that the stations will “provide an alternative to the other two local stations” and “focus on the network product and provide it to people who prefer that.” The stations will retain local high school sports coverage on weekends.
The stations have registered just a 0.3 share in the last three Nielsen Audio PPM ratings, placing it well behind iHeartMedia’s “100.3 KFAN” KFXN-FM which had a 5.7 share in April and Hubbard’s “1500 ESPN” KSTP’s 1.2 share.
