Radio Ratings / FCC Grants KIRO TV Ownership Transfer


(Classic Rock) KZOK (iHeart Media) dropped veteran personality Steve Slaton in August, as you will recall. Careful not to spill your Cheerios… KZOK ratings, over this 90 day period ending November, dropped 1.1 share points. That moves KZOK from #2 into a tie with (Talk) KIRO FM (Bonneville) for third place. Top dog is (Top 40) Movin’ 92.5 KQMV (Hubbard) with (News-Talk) KUOW (University of Wa) taking second place.
