Limbaugh Tops TSL Q4 Top 25 Streaming Talk Shows


Talk Stream Live has released its fourth quarter 2017 ratings and ranks for the most streamed national radio talk shows from October 1 through December 31 with a sample size of 5.6 million listener sessions. Rush Limbaugh remains #1 for Q4 with a 16.5 share. Michael Savage stays a strong #2 with a 14.8 share. Followed by Laura Ingraham at #3 with 6.8 share. Sean Hannity at #4 with 5.7 share and Mark Levin at #5 with 5.5 share.

Paranormal programs continue to grow in popularity with Clyde Lewis-Ground Zero at #6, George Noory-Coast to Coast at #8 and breaking through at #25 Jimmy Church-Fade to Black. TSL's new Paranormal Radio app played a role in boosting listeners to the genre. Trump's contentious political and media battles fueled the talk topics. TSL's Talk Right app also contributed to a spike in conservative listeners. TSL sample size grew by half a million, exceeding 5.6 million for the 4th quarter.
