Is 640 Toronto Gaining On Fan 590?

I don’t have a ton of information, and getting real details is difficult these days when it comes to radio ratings but here is what several sources are telling me this morning:

Rumour is, that for the first time, in the month of September, amongst men aged 25-54 year olds 640 Toronto won every hour starting at 6am until noon. Yes, I am told that this has never happened before and that the Fan lost in every morning hour against 640 Toronto.

Now to be fair, at least to Andrew Krystal, those numbers aren’t his in the morning slot. He was still in the Hogan slot.

So from 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, 9-10, 10-11 and 11-12 640’s numbers were apparently higher than 590’s amongst malelisteners 25-54. In some cases I am told that the 640 lead over 590 was dramatic.

I will try to get more info on this, but that’s what I have so far…

Meanwhile, not sure if you heard Stephen Brunt say today on PTS that “his deal is almost done” well, that appears to be the case. So with Brunt re-upping on a deal to remain on PTS who will get the other half? For those who said Mr. Mcgoo, not so fast. I have it on good authority that there is a strong possibility that John Shannon won’t be spending too much time sitting next to Mccown. Who exactly will be the other half of the co-host I’m not quite sure of just yet…I have my guesses and preferences but stay tuned.
