CHR had a strong kick off this summer musically, lot of better songs but it just stalled in July. One song from the Country charts that I thought would be a hit on CHR (Speechless by Dan + Shay) is now a Top-20 hit, but the stations around here avoided it unfortunately.
WXSS in Milwaukee had itís strongest showing in awhile. Iím guessing the reason is all of the songs out of the WBMX ďThrowbackĒ library that they have been playing every other song. Milwaukee basically no longer has a full blown Mainstream CHR anymore, but with the ratings WXSS got last month, its not harming them any.
KHKS in Dallas and KQMV Seattle are still #1 in their respective markets with an iron fist. Both are flagships for syndicated morning shows (Kidd Kraddick and Brooke & Jubal) Not sure if this has anything to do with it.
On a side note, anybody notice WLS-AMís sudden bump? Itís not huge, but they were Top 10 Middays this book for the first time on awhile and the 6+ has been up slightly.
