Clear Channel powerhouse WLTW/Lite FM maintains its top spot in the monthly ratings.

Lite FM not only held number one in the February Arbitron ratings, the Soft Adult Contemporary added .2 to 7.3 for the month.

Perennial number two, WCBS-FM moved up slightly to 6.6.

WHTZ/Z100 had a .3 gain for February to 5.2, sister station WKTU kept pace at 4.4, while Clear Channel rocker WAXQ/Q 104.3 minimal improvement to 3.9.

Spanish station WSKQ dropped .4 to 3.8, while Tropical formatted WXNY saw a .3 upgrade to 3.5.

A pair of stations were next on the survey, both improving from 3.4 to 3.7–CBS’ Fresh 102.7/WWFS and Emmis’ KISS FM/WRKS.

A check of News/Talk stations, WINS was king, despite losing .2 to 3.5. Cumulus’ WABC lost .2 to 3.0. WCBS-AM fell slightly to 2.8.

And then there’s the FM newser WEMP. February marks six months since 101.9 started it’s experimental programming. The station holds at a minuscule .7 for a second straight month.
