Sample Size: 35 Million Listening Sessions

Editor’s Note: Talk Stream Live (TSL) sampled 35 million listeners during 2021 to produce The TSL Power 50 Report – The 50 most influential and most listened-to streaming talk shows. The Power 50 includes the big personalities talk show fans would expect as well as some new media rising stars. Congratulations to the members of The TSL Power 50! There are new top talk shows to report in more than a decade: #1 Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis and #2 Mark Levin. Talk Right shows dominated the ratings, followed by the growing popularity of Paranormal themed programs. This is first time streaming numbers took a dip due to the perennial top two shows’ departures with Rush’s passing and Savage’s radio retirement. Also contributing: Trump’s out-of-office with a disputed election and ensuing capitol chaos. Plus, the looming and lingering pandemic. Listeners took a break. 2022 is off to booming start.

The TSL Power 50 Report tracks streaming talk shows through our online website platform channels, apps and gadgets. (This report only ranks the talk shows that are listed at TalkStreamLive.com.)
