Nielsen's recently released "Audio Today Report" took stock of the top radio formats in America last year, and for the eighth consecutive year, Country came out on top when ranked by share of total listening. According to its analysis, 13.6% of all radio listening in the U.S. went to a Country-formatted station. Country has been the top-ranked format since 2009. The last time it was bested was in 2008, when News/Talk was the top format by share of audience. News/Talk held steady at number two last year, followed by Pop Contemporary Hit Radio (CHR), Adult Contemporary and Classic Rock.
