AM Sports Radio Stations

Has anybody ever done a study to find out how many minutes in an hour AM sports radio stations actually talk about sports?

I'd say less than 20 out of every 60 minutes are actually "sports talk." If they're not doing a commercial talking about buying jewelry, it's a divorce lawyer telling you how to get your ring back! Throw in a little porn music wile you wait for the host to get back from the pooper, and nearly 40 minutes have gone by. Add the "sports news update" and there's even less time the sports talk guys have talked sports!

No disrespect 610 and 810 station lurkers, y'all are awesome (ask yourself!), but it's just a question I've had for a while...

Well its actually more like 12-14 minutes of commercials, add another 1 min or so of sports update and then porn music, you are probably getting 43-45 mins of The hosts. Now, if they dont talk sports the whole time thats another thing.

Sirius/XM NFL is pretty great most of the time,I have to admit though I can't get into Gil Brandt although I know he's been around forever.

They also do about 12-14 mins of commercials per hour. It seems longer on Sirius for some reason tho. I think because the sound quality isnt as good as terresterial radio

Really?My sound quality is way better and as for the commercials I know they're the same but when they come back it's football talk and not a bunch of bs I could do without.

Sirius/XM has WAY TOO MANY Commercials on it....

Their talk stations are worse than regular AM/FM stations. Really is discouraging that I can listen to Sirius for my 25 min drive into the office and catch 20+ min of commercials.

They are extremely frustrating...

Yeah but thats not an actual "commercial". Thats them giving love to whoever just fed them for free. And it certainly happens more on a talk radio format then a music format only because we dont have time to talk about food, we have to get that Metallica tune going ;-)

810 is the worst about that. "Where you going golfing tonight?" "How was that lunch you ate on break?" "We have Jack Harry here but lets play catch up about our personal lives for the first five minutes."

No shit I quit listening to 810 specifically for this and especially the long pregnant pauses and so bad that I thought something was wrong with my computer only to find out they just had nothing more to talk about once you got past as you say, "whatchya having for lunch today" BS.

At least Fescoe on 610 keeps it funny with sports top ten lists when they have exhausted the day's sports topics. Fescoe is so much better than the "illegal immigrant patrol".

I disagree the content on 810 may not be as good but the Delivery and passion for KC sports are much better there. If the morons are talking about golf/bbq/baseball/etc I just listen to tunes instead.

I just recently started streaming both stations especially early in the a.m. since we now have the 1st pick just to get the pulse of Chiefs Nation so I will admit I don't have a long contextual true objective take yet but initially just for the a.m. shows Fescoe and Josh are far more entertaining and informative.

And then you have the hosts/guests who repeat the same BS point over & over, so how much time is actually spent talking about NEW/FRESH takes on sports issues?

I can tell you why they do this as well:
We have a thing called Time Spent Listening. TSL. Most people arent glued to their radios. They are busy, in and out of their cars, their desk whatever. So just because you have heard the same point being made last hour, someone else hasnt. We have ratings that tell us what the avergage time spent listeing is. And I gaurantee you its not 3 hours. its more like 15 mins in many cases.

Most radio stations like to have 44 minutes of content and about 16 of commercials/news/weather.
