Twice a year, Arbitron releases the ratings for radio in the Evansville area, and the Spring 2011 numbers are now out.
As usual, South Central Media's WIKY-104.1 is the station that rules the roost, and this time the station was able to put a bit more distance between itself and #2 station WKDQ-99.5. Both stations were able to post gains over Spring 2010.
South Central's WSTO-Hot 96, with a slight uptick in its ratings, is still a solid third.
Toward the middle of the pack, rock stations WABX-107.5 and 103GBF (WGBF-FM) registered the largest drops of any stations in the area, falling into a statistical tie with each other.
At the low end of the scale, WQXQ-101.9 (Central City, Ky.) and WYNG-94.9 (Mt. Carmel, Ill.) appeared in the ratings for the first time in more than 2 years, although they did not register highly.
