TSL sampled over 1.2 million listeners during the first 6 months of 2012 to produce the Power 50 Report – the 50 most influential talk show hosts on the Internet and on mobile devices. We are proud to report that Rush Limbaugh is #1, Michael Savage #2 and Laura Ingraham #3. These are the most listened to talk show hosts in the world. All data collected to produce this report came from our server via the TalkStreamLive.com website, Show Stopper, The List, Impulse gadgets and mobile iPhone app. The Power 50 includes the big personalities talk show fans would expect as well as some new media rising stars. The conclusions are our own and not guaranteed to be accurate.

Notes:
Beyond the reach of the boycotts #1 Rush Limbaugh continues to rule supreme on the internet and on the mobile internet. Now anointed as the “Queen of Mobile,” #2 Laura Ingraham’s impressive mobile performance account for her slightly edging out Michael Savage. Savage continues to grow his online audience and seems unstoppable as he leaves the rest of the talk radio field in his wake. The Dana Show emerges for the first time gracing the top 25 list and Rusty Humphries reemerges. Sample size for this report has enormously expanded. This reflects other current studies, reveling a massive shift upwards in listening to streaming radio on mobile devices.

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.
