1000000watts.com now reports 408 stations in the U.S. and Canada are all-Christmas. This list includes affiliates of the Family Life radio network and HD stations. Since Christmas is on a Saturday this year, I wonder if any of the stations will remain all-Christmas through Sunday.
Unless I overlooked it, seems like they forgot to include WHER Laurel-Hattiesburg, so I'll make the number 409.
www.allaccess.com/mediabase/q/report/stations/by/format/for/A1 has the panel, which has 164 stations. Would people like to split up the work of checking every playlist and posting here if they find a song playing Christmas songs. If the three people above me and I share three ways, we could look at 41 stations each. You could look at multiple stations per minute.
Entercom has dropped CHR on “Amp Radio 98.7” WDZH Detroit and is currently stunting with a broader than normal Christmas music format.
Currently branding as “The Rudolph Network at 98.7“, the station began stunting a little after 5:00. The move brings an end to the nine year old CHR format at the station. The flip took place hours after iHeartMedia AC 100.3 WNIC made its annual move to Christmas music this morning.
WDZH ranked sixteenth in the Detroit market with a 2.4 share in the October 2018 Nielsen Audio ratings. IHeartMedia’s crosstown CHR “Channel 95.5” WKQI was eighth with a 5.1.
No word yet on the status of the current WDZH airstaff.
