AM Sports Radio Stations

Has anybody ever done a study to find out how many minutes in an hour AM sports radio stations actually talk about sports?

I'd say less than 20 out of every 60 minutes are actually "sports talk." If they're not doing a commercial talking about buying jewelry, it's a divorce lawyer telling you how to get your ring back! Throw in a little porn music wile you wait for the host to get back from the pooper, and nearly 40 minutes have gone by. Add the "sports news update" and there's even less time the sports talk guys have talked sports!

No disrespect 610 and 810 station lurkers, y'all are awesome (ask yourself!), but it's just a question I've had for a while...

I would take that over hearing about Fescoe's dog, Bill Maas' prostate and Kevin Keitzmann's general idiotic disposition.

Really?My sound quality is way better and as for the commercials I know they're the same but when they come back it's football talk and not a bunch of bs I could do without.

Does Kevin Keitzman blabbing with the BBQ guy count as sports?

That station is HORRIBLE. I am so glad 98.7 is going strong, although 98.7 took a MAJOR step back adding Jim Rome from noon to 3.

No. It's not. FCC doesn't regulate content EXCEPT for indecency/obscenity and a few special little things, but as a rule, the FCC stays out of it. As it should.

Thats imaging, not commercials. In other words, thats content as well.

EDIT:
Now, if you are traveling during the time where they are most apt to play commercails, that may be why you are under the impression thats its more commercials than content. For instance, our "Stop Sets' (Commercials), are 6 mins a piece at 20 after the hour and 40 after the hour. So if someone drives everyday from 8:15am and arrives at work at 8:45am everyday, trhen they are going to hear more comercials, then say someone who leaves at 7:50am and gets to work at 8:30. those people will only hear 6 mins of commercials.
Actually that might be it, I leave the gym at around 6:40'ish in the morning and get into the parking garage around 7:20 (give or take for traffic). So that could be it.

Either way, even when a Low-T add isn't playing, or the hosts talking about something other than sports, the actual time spent on content still seems low... I'll get over it I'm sure...

Don't forget, different people have different ideas on what content IS. If they're talking about something sports related that YOU aren't into, you mentally push it into the "commercials and other bullshit" file in your mind. The next guy has a completely different outlook.

Point taken, but I'll do what I can to count basketball talk as "sports" talk. It'll be a challenge, but I think I can do it...

Sports talk radio isn't always just sports, really on any channel. Sometimes, they do talk about subjects. Sports talk is just the predominate topic.
