Continuing buzz in Pittsburgh that Quinn and Rose may soon be off the air as their flagship station may be flipping to all-sports.

No neither is Jack Blood and George Noory, which should be in the place of Art Bell or just Coast to Coast AM, but these are the rankings at the website talk radio stream. I just put that the top ones are all conservative.

The TSL Top 100 Talk Shows for February 2013

13 Neal Boortz

February? Huh? Neal was in the Boortz Cruiser for his retirement by January 20. Maybe they didn't update their database with Herman Cain's name.

I see that George Noory was put on separate and is at number 11. Well I don’t see how they measured Art Bell, other than a Saturday night replay of old C2C shows with him hosting. So that must be all they measured for the ratings of Art Bell. The Somewhere In Time Show. Me I would have just done one entry for the show Coast To Coast Am, specially after reading Art Bell is in the process of severing all ties to premier radio now.

The ratings were posted in February 6th. I am sure it measured Boortz in January after the previous ratings and that it now plays Herman Cain using the Noortz links at the site.

#71,Michael Smerconish.
We have that clod twice here in Raleigh. AM from 9 - 1 and again sometime overnight.

Yesterday he had an historian on claiming Jimmie Carter was actually a good president and just misunderstood.
Riiiiiiight!

Miss his show....The Black Avenger was truly a conservative who was one of the first to point out Fox News was not really conservative

Mark Levin’s show should be required listening for ALL members of Congress, followed by periodic testing to make sure they get it. Dem-Libtards too, those idiots may just learn something, or have a mental breakdown.

I guess Donny is back to radio because when he did a reality show on Vh-1 then he was with a radio show as well and the cameras went in their and showed him. He said at the end of the series that he was fired on the finally episode.

I agree on Mark Levin. For me, I also have latched on to the local show with Dana Loesch out of Saint Louis, Missouri since her podcasts are free. I always check Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck’s nightly show as well. I also like Rusty Humphries which I began following when he was the only show after Levin and/or Savage live. Now he is on against Hannity, but the feed is replayed at the old time slot. Each host has a different flavor.

And with too many shows I can’t listen to them all nor do I have the time. From time to time I check out Laura Ingraham, Hannity and Savage. I also infrequently check out other shows. It is what it is.

Shouldn’t it be Rush Limbaugh at 1 and everyone else starting at 25?

My area near Kansas City has a woman named Darla Jaye who is ok. But most of what she says is repeated by the national guys and Dana Loesch out of Saint Louis or Chris Plante in D.C. I like them a bit better. Another one whose podcasts I have heard once was Dr. Laurie Roth, she is interesting. But I can’t find when she is on live. Last year Laurie tried to run for president as a independent and later quit and endorsed Romney over Virgil Goode, who beat her for the constitutional party nomination. Well, then I notice Jesse Lee Peterson is on mornings, but I find his podcasts are on Itunes so listen to them occasionally.

The fight has always been for second or third place and never for first in the ratings so you are right. Rush is always first. But while Hannity is second on terrestrial radio, Savage is second online as this sites ratings prove. Third place has been on terrestrial radio a battle for years between Savage and Beck. Glenn Beck is in third on this site’s rankings. I know Mark Levin is popular in conservative circles, but he is always generally in 5th spot. 4th spot on these rankings is Laura Ingraham. Sometimes, Dave Ramsey or Glenn Beck are fourth in talkers magazine. Sean Hannity is 6th on this list.

At talkers magazine’s website I searched out a current list of terrestrial ratings and this was the best I could find.

bump

It’s going to be sad when Limbaugh retires, it could be the end of terrestrial talk radio as we know it.

Some of our people are trying to expand.
Glenn Beck is trying to get The Blaze on cable outlets.

Rusty Humphries is now affiliated with the Tea Party News Network and soon his show will add cameras for video feeds from the Arizona studios.

Dana Loesch left Breitbart and sued them. When it is settled, she will move to another place.

So she is back to blogging at her old site.

Mark Levin is with the Landmark Legal Fund, founded in 1976, and they just scored a win.

As you know Both Michael Savage and Laura Ingraham changed syndication.
TRN then started The Andrea Tantaros Show.
