Toronto PPM Results

PPM’s are tailor-made for heritage AC stations like Rogers’ 98.1 CHFI. “F-I” packed on a couple more shares and now have a 5 point bulge over Bell’s CHUM-FM, but the latter did manage to reach the 5,000,000 mark in circulation. The CBC’s English flagship, CBLA-FM, bounced back from a somewhat soft summer and remains 3rd. 680 News (CFTR) moved up to 4th as Virgin (CKFM-FM) softened a half-share. CFRB had a nice increase and are likely sending a “Thank You” card to Mayor Rob Ford. Boom 97.3 (currently with Bell, but soon to be Newcap’s entrance into the nation’s largest market) dropped back to their pre-summer showing but are still tied for the 6th rank. Corus’ Classic Rocker, Q107 (CILQ-FM), was down slightly but hung on to 7th. Moses Znaimer’s New Classical 96.3 (CFMZ-FM) continues its strong performance. The station was up .5 of a share and moved from 11th to 9th. The Edge (CFNY-FM) seems to be suffering from a morning show shakeup and increased formatic competition from new sign-on Indie 88 (CIND-FM) as they dropped from a 4.6 to 3.8, which is their lowest showing in a year. Kiss 92-5 is still struggling in Toronto’s ongoing CHR war. The station gave back all the ground it made up over 2013 and are stuck in 11th spot, 6 back of Virgin. As mentioned, Indie 88 made its ratings debut and while a 0.4 share won’t have anyone jumping for joy that will undoubtedly climb with their just completed power increase.
