April 25-May 22 have the MAY 2024 PPM Radio Results.   June PPM and Spring Books Over on June 19.

The broad numbers offer a no-cost strategy for adding income without major investment.

Stations with cume positions higher than share ranks can easily be enhanced with presentation curation.

 Remember when April/May used to be The Big Arbitron?  Ad planning through the end of the year vs. “The Summer Top 40” Book, Fall that came out too close to The Holidays and Jan/Feb “With Snow and News.”
