What's In a Number? (update)
You can read Current's article here.
If you are linking to radiosutton from the Current site, my original post on this topic can be found here.
I will also use this opportunity to once again call for greater accountability in the creation and publication of audience estimates for radio networks and their programs.
Individual radio stations aren't allowed to make up and publish their own unverified audience estimates. Allowing radio networks to control, selectively release, and sometimes hide the information they use to calculate their national audience numbers is an unacceptable business practice. It's bad for all of radio, not just public radio.
