Doug Banks still tops afternoon drive

Thirty-two years after Doug Banks began broadcasting in Chicago, he’s still riding high in the ratings.

Nielsen Audio figures released Monday for the period from September 11 to October 8 again give Banks the top spot for his syndicated afternoon show on iHeartMedia urban adult-contemporary WVAZ FM 102.7. That’s the same frequency where it all began for Banks in 1982 under the call letters WBMX.

Leading afternoons among men between 25 and 54 is Terry Boers and Dan Bernstein of CBS Radio sports/talk WSCR AM 670, while No. 1 among women 25-54 is Kevin “Koz” Koske on Hubbard Radio hot adult-contemporary WTMX FM 101.9.

Here’s a look at Chicago’s top 10 afternoon shows as measured by Nielsen Audio among all listeners age 6 and older from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, followed by average share of audience (with previous month’s share in parentheses).
