I want to say "thank you" to all the listeners of KFGO.
As you've probably heard the past couple of days, the latest Arbitron ratings for the Fargo-Moorhead market have been released and KFGO is again No. 1. That is a credit to you, the 75,000+ listeners of The Mighty 790.
It is also a credit to you that the Mike McFeely Show is the most-listened to program from 2-5 p.m. in the market with 38,000+ listeners. I was even able to edge our teammate in the Midwest Communications building on 25th Street -- contemporary hits monster Y-94 -- by a couple of hundred listeners. That's the first time that has happened, I believe, in my four years at KFGO.
So I just wanted to post a quick note to thank everybody who listens to KFGO. With our new ownership, I think things are even going to get bigger and better on my show.
I hope you become a member of my text club by sending the word Mike to short code 35270. That will allow you to become part of prize giveaways, breaking updates and any special guests or topics you won't to miss. You'll get a text message on your phone ... but we'll make sure we don't send too many.
You can also check out this blog regularly. I'm hoping to post one or two things everyday. Some of it will be serious and opinionated, some will be silly, some will probably be stupid. But we'll try to get some conversation started, like we do from 2-5 p.m. each day on KFGO.
Here are the 12+ ratings for all the stations in the Fargo-Moorhead market. And, again, thank you for listening to the Mike McFeely Show.
These ratings reflect all people 12 and older listening to radio 6 a.m. to midnight, Monday to Friday. These are the basic all-inclusive ratings, not broken down into age or gender demographics.
A share = percentage of people listening to radio tuned to a station.
