Most popular radio stations in San Diego 2019 In San Diego in June 2019, the leading radio station was KPBS-FM with a rating of 6.2, i.e. 6.2 percent of those listening to the radio in San Diego listened to KPBS-FM for at least five minutes in each 15-minute period. The station is generally one of the most listened to radio formats in the city, along with KSON-FM (country) and KXSN-FM which plays classic hits.
Also popular in San Diego is the regional Mexican format, which features on stations across the United States although rarely performs as well elsewhere. Mexican formats tend not to garner a high share of listeners in cities further away from the border. Even radio ratings in Las Vegas do not generally reflect an interest in such radio content despite its relative proximity to San Diego and Los Angeles, where the format is also popular. Ratings in cities like St. Louis on the other hand show a near non-existent audience for Mexican radio content, with preferences leaning towards gospel, religious and contemporary Christian formats.
