KIIS, KFI, KROQ Among the Nation's Top-Billing Radio Stations
Good news/bad news for Clear Channel's KIIS-FM. The top 40 outlet remains Los Angeles' top-billing radio station, pulling in $54 million last year. But it's no longer the nation's top-billing station overall.
Nope, that designation now goes to Washington, D.C., all-news powerhouse WTOP-FM, which billed $57.2 million in 2010, according to BIA/Kelsey.
Clear Channel's KFI was No. 4, at $46 million, and CBS Radio's KROQ-FM was No. 10, at $39 million. KROQ easily leads all rock stations in the country, thanks in part to morning radio duo Kevin & Bean.
