Editor’s note: Michael Savage scores big again with a 27 share and #1 ranking at Talk Stream Live and leads all other talk shows by wide margins and extends his undisputed and unprecedented dominance in the streaming online talk domain. Rush Limbaugh is #2 and has gained ground with a 15.6 share, followed by Laura Ingraham #3, Mark Levin #4, and Glenn Beck at #5. Howie Carr moves up to #7 and Chris Plante jumps 9 spots to #16. The TSL 1st Q 2016 report sample size breaks new ground by surpassing the 2 million mark.

“The Future of Talk Radio is Topic-Driven”
Starting today you can now post talk show topics along with click-to-listen audio links to Facebook and Twitter for any of the shows you find streaming at TalkStreamLive.com. Now the hottest talk topics and shows can spread virally throughout the social networks.

What’s Changed?

The home page now features larger host photos and we have added Trending Topics, a new way for listeners and hosts to see which talk radio topics are trending. Click on a #topic in this box to choose a program based on the topic that interest you most!

What Hasn’t Changed?

The site remains dynamic – shows appear on the list only when they are live or in replay, and they rank by popularity. See the latest listener ranking report here: http://t.co/b68Ei2lV

TSL Radio Spot

Our new 30 second radio spot, Topic-Driven Talk Radio, tells the story. If you have a show or station please help us spread the word. Click Here to download.

We made a lot of progress on the new site last night. The “Trending Topic” feature is finished and the logic is working as expected. We have a few odds and ends to clean up and if nothing goes wrong we should be ready for a soft launch by Sunday evening or Monday afternoon.

Talk Stream Live is thrilled to announce that we will now incorporate and account for our mobile listening sessions as part of our metrics to produce our internet streaming talk show ranking and share reports. Mobile devices (iPhone, iPod, iPads and tablets etc.) now comprises nearly half of our traffic and this additional data will double our sample size.

We have decided not to publish the Top 100 Report for 2011 due to the inconsistency it would show with the past four quarterly reports. These reports were produced with only website metrics. From analyzing the data it appears that Mobile listening is a bit different than listening on the computer. Don’t worry it’s not entirely different Rush is still #1 no matter how you look at it but there are some surprises in the top 25 ranking. For now we have eliminated the monthly Trend Reports. We will continue to produce our Quarterly Top 25 Talk Show Report. Look forward to the TSL Top 25 1st Quarter report at the end of March as it will be the first report to include mobile listening data.

TalkStreamLive’s Top 25 Report uses webcast metrics that originate exclusively from actual server data. It measure listener share of the top 25 talk radio shows streaming online that link from our directory. Only unique sessions over a 90 day period are used to produce the top 25 report. We do not represent the entire internet radio listening universe.  In addition to the website, we also track listener stats from all our gadgets and widgets that appear on independent web and Google home pages.  The listener stats from our mobile site TalkStreamLive.mobi are not included in this report. The conclusions are our own and not guaranteed to be accurate.
