Leading radio stations in Los Angeles in September 2019, by ratings

by Amy Watson, last edited Oct 10, 2019
Most popular radio stations in L.A. 2019 Los Angeles’ leading radio station as of September 2019 was KOST-FM, with 5.9 percent of radio listeners in the Los Angeles metropolitan area tuning in to the station for at least five minutes in each quarter hour period. This metric is often referred to as simply Average Quarter-Hour Persons (abbreviated to AQH).
Which radio stations are the most popular in Los Angeles?

Since initially adopting the KOST-FM moniker in 1968, the radio station has ranked among the most popular in Los Angeles, especially during holiday seasons, during which the station switches to primarily Christmas music. Along with KOST-FM, many of the city’s most popular stations, including KIIS-FM, KBIG-FM and KRRL-FM are owned by media industry giant iHeartMedia.


iHeartMedia was formerly known as CC Media Holdings Inc. prior to the company’s rebranding in 2014. The company owns hundreds of radio stations across the United States, and each of the four Los Angeles-based stations mentioned above rank among its top 10 most popular radio stations. iHeartMedia also regularly features close to the top of a ranking of leading online radio companies in the U.S. based on average active sessions, and provides a vast range of stations to its users including those focused on news, sports and multiple different genres of music.
