Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

As consistent as a metronome, and slightly more entertaining, KTCK-AM (1310, The Ticket) again dominates the sports-talk radio landscape in quarterly Arbitron ratings released this morning. Make that: The Ticket dominates the entire local radio landscape.

Radio numbers are tricky and can be easily be twisted into deceptive appearances, but there's no debating the bottom line: The Ticket is No. 1 in the highly coveted demographic of men 25 to 54 for the total listening week, and for the individual day parts of 6-10 a.m., 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and 3-7 p.m. It's also The Ticket's eighth straight ratings book -- that's two years running -- during which the station ranks No. 1 in men 25 to 54 for the crucial listening period of Monday through Friday 6 a.m.-midnight. In other words, it's safe to make the pronouncement: dynasty. --Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
