Which radio stations are the most popular in New York City?

The radio stations listened to the most each month in New York vary, however stations specializing in adult contemporary music, classic rock and news regularly feature in the top ten. Another popular format is contemporary hit radio (CHR) which focuses on music within the top 40 music charts.

The top 40 music charts have undergone changes in recent years. Whilst it traditionally includes a mixture of rock, pop and R&B music, the actual contents of the top 40 is naturally subject to regular change based on listeners’ tastes and the latest releases. The format relies on what is ‘trending’ in order to appeal to its young demographic, and so the charts can often end up being compiled of many similar songs. This is good news for adult contemporary stations as listeners migrate towards the format in a bid to find music with greater variety.
