How does AM and PM rate on local radio? They feel like programs that would be better suited to RN.

Better than they do on RN. Haven’t seen a breakdown for a few years but I recall an article where 7:45 to 8:30 (news and AM) was the highest rating portion of the breakfast slot in most markets.

Don’t know about PM.

i think they work on local radio. people who listen to local radio are not news junkies - otherwise they would be on newsradio. AM, the world today and PM are the right length to give good news analysis for non news people without being repetitive. than its back to the 5 min bulletin at the top of the hour
