California Music Channel Ratings and Awards

Information for advertising agencies

CMC subscribes to Nielsen Media Research and uses the services of Strata Marketing Research to provide avails and audience data. Ratings are available in almost all demos from teens to Adults 35+. Occasionally the station may deliver a higher rating in smaller demo cells like P12-17 simply because there are fewer people in the call and so it is more likely to achieve a higher rating than a broader demo. Overall the station is very efficient in delivering adults. 85% of the audience is over 18, and more than 60% are in the vital 25-54 demo. This is purposeful. It is the result of he station's broad music appeal as well as CMC's instituitional status in the San Francisco Bay Area. Viewers have litterally grown up with CMC for 30 years!
