Editor’s note: Rush is #1, followed by Savage, Beck, Laura and Mark Levin moves up to fifth place. TSL listenership increased in the Fourth Quarter primarily due to the major topics being discussed on talk radio: The Presidential Election, Hurricane Sandy, the Mayan end of the world, fiscal cliff and Newtown CT – the most horrific and senseless slaughter of our time. Impacting the talk radio landscape further was Michael Savage and Laura Ingraham, two top talk shows that were on hiatus while changing networks to some degree offsetting their 4th Q ranking.

Michael Savage “built this.” “The Savage Nation” is the second most listened to talk show in the world. Savage made massive gains in second quarter and is now closing in on #1 Rush Limbaugh while replacing Laura Ingraham, now #3.  Glen Beck, Tammy Bruce, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Neal Boortz, Bill Bennett and Dennis Miller round out the top ten talk shows streaming on the internet.

The Power 50: https://talkstreamlive.wordpress.com/2012/07/10/the-power-50-4/

Talk Stream Live™

 

“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.


Social Talk Radio

Listen to a show and post your first talk radio #topic now at www.TalkStreamLive.com

 

Image This hash tag is “the key that will carry talk radio to new distribution and markets only dreamed of and will also drive the discussions of the shows.” Read more here.

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.

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.
