Most popular radio stations in Detroit 2019

Leading radio stations in Detroit, U.S. in June 2019, by ratings

by Amy Watson, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Most popular radio stations in Detroit 2019 The leading radio station in Detroit in June 2019 was WMXD-FM. In that month, the station had a rating of 6.9, which means that 6.9 percent of radio listeners in Detroit tuned into WMXD-FM for at least five minutes in each quarter hour period.
Two regular features in the top ten are WRIF-FM (rock) and WCSX-FM (classic rock), both of which are owned by Beasley Broadcast Group, the owner of multiple radio stations across the United States. Detroit’s top radio stations also include sports, country and adult contemporary formats, suggesting a diverse radio audience.

Radio and diversity

Despite often struggling to compete with non-traditional media, radio undeniably has a lot to offer the consumer. Data shows that radio appeals to listeners of all ages, with younger generations preferring rock, rhythmic and top 40 stations and older adults making up the audience share for the likes of jazz, gospel and news/talk formats. Equally, the audience share for country radio stations as well as classic rock and Christian formats varied less across age groups.

Whilst radio offers variety in its content, the same is not true of its workforce. Calls for greater diversity in employment have grown louder and louder in recent years, but the vast majority of the radio news workforce in the U.S. is still Caucasian, with just tiny percentages of African American, Hispanic, Asian American and Native Americans employed in the industry. This is also the case with radio news directors. There is also a strong gender bias in the radio industry – female review writers for radio are in the minority, more so than in other media outlets.
