Top ten talk in Tucson

November 27, 2009 at 3:12 pm Leave a comment

In case you are wondering about what radio talk shows people in Tucson are listening too, here’s a break down of the top 10.

There 3 different stations represented here.  I think it is safe to say that KNST (aka “K-nasty”) is a strong conservative station, with Rush, Hannity, Parisi, and Beck filling their airwaves.  Jon Justice, also a conservative (see below), is from KQTH.

The rest of the list is made up of KUAZ shows, the local NPR station. NPR has been increasing in membership lately… there is hope!

Half of the 10 highest rated programs on talk stations are on the University of Arizona-owned station. Clear Channel’s KNST has four in the top 10 and Justice’s show is the only show to make the top 10 on Journal Broadcast Group’s the Truth.

Regarding Jon Justice, please enjoy the following video he made mocking Isabel Garcia, humanitarian who works with human rights issues in Tucson, AZ. You decide for yourself what to call it.
