The Streaming Talk Radio Report from TalkStreamLive.com tracks the top 25 Talk Shows that are streaming on the Internet.

The report is published every month and passively tracks listening habits over the previous three month period. Talk Shows are ranked by popularity and an audience share rating is determined.

We only track “unique page views” –only clicks that are generated by the same user during the same session. (For obvious reasons this report discards multiple clicks by users to the same Talk Show).

Top 10 Talk Radio Audiences
The audience projection is produced using US adult 18+ censes figures that are adjusted for radio listenership and share percentages from the TalkStreamLive.com Internet Talk Radio Reports.

Frees Media is a media buying service in business for over ten years. We specialize in Radio, TV and Outdoor advertising as well as Audio streaming advertising on the Internet. Call us for Store Support and new product launches. 

We hope you benifit by our reasearch.

Rush Limbaugh remains the undisputed King of Talk Radio.


Diamond in the rough – The Right Perspective – improves its ranking to number 15 on the list of the most listened to Talk Radio Shows on the Internet.

Smartphone  We have a new feature that enables you to take TalkStreamLive with you where ever you go.

Most mornings I make a cup of coffee and click on a few talk shows while I check my email. My listening patterns are routine. I start with Bill Bennett and Quinn and Rose to find out what’s going on.   After reassurance that most things are in order, I click on Mancow.  By this time it’s time to go to work.

Now, even though I reside in the largest media market in the world, these shows are unavailable to me locally.  I find myself wanting to continue listening and lingering around my notebook when I should be on my way…

An idea is born:

We developed a mobi page called TalkStreamLive.mobi that is optimized to fit on your cell phone or PDA.  Now I can continue listening to my choice of talk radio programming on my way to work –or whenever I’m on the go… and so can you, with a few upgrades.

 Your cell phone or handheld device will need to have Windows mobile software. I bought the Motorola Q Smartphone. In addition to your voice plan, you will need a data plan (about $40). Check with your cell phone provider for capabilities options and costs. Streaming radio does not require too much bandwith, but it does run the phone’s battery. I plug in during my commute and have not had any issues during the rest of the day.

Having easy access to Talk Radio on my cell phone is a joy.  Give it a try. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Notes from the top ten: Glenn Beck stakes his claim as the #3 ranked Talk Show on the Internet. His move on Sean Hannity started in last month’s report. It now looks that he is clearly #3 as he continues to widen the gap by 6 tenths of a share.

Obviously the Becksters won’t be be happy till they replace Michael Savage with Glenn Beck as the #2. And you know that the Savages won’t go down without a fight. The #1 Ditto Heads don’t miss a beat.

P.S. Dennis Miller’s feeble knock at the door ignored by O’Reilly. And, how is it that MANCOW can be heard on only a handful of terrestrials while on-line he is ranked with the big boys & Laura?

Survey Period:  3/1/2007 – 5/30/2007 (March, April & May)


 1   Rush Limbaugh   11.1
 2   Michael Savage   6.6
 3   Glenn Beck  6.0
 4   Sean Hannity  5.4 
 5   MANCOW  5.1
