The Michael Kay Show Scores in Winter Ratings Book

  • Ranks as New York’s Top Sports Talk Show in Key Male Demographic Groups

The Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York 98.7FM led New York sports talk shows in the winter ratings book for the time slot shared with WFAN’s afternoon program among the key demographic group of men age 25-54.  The show averaged a 4.4 rating with that group for 3 – 6:30 p.m. ET, compared to 4.2 for WFAN.  The ratings book covered January 4 – March 28.

The 98.7 ESPN show – hosted by Kay, Don La Greca and Peter Rosenberg weekdays from 3 – 7 p.m. ET – had a very strong advantage among young men (age 18-34), with a 3.3 rating compared to a 2.4 for WFAN’s combined audience on two stations.

Tim McCarthy, ESPN New York’s senior vice president and general manager, said, “I’m really happy for Michael, Don and Peter. They’ve been doing this for a long time, and the good news is the ratings over the last year have continued to grow in the right direction.”
