2021 was another year marked by covid. With its effects on radio listening, it is little wonder that three ratings results for Survey 1, 5 and 6 all made it into the top 10.
More of a wonder is that a story we first published in 2015, Alan are you a homosexual? still made it into #7 most read in 2021. For the record, yes, he is. But no, we don’t care one way or the other, although it seems to be a question for the ages amongst many who, while browsing the net, come to discover that very direct headline each year.
A story with an even longer tail, coming in at #18, harks back to 2006 when the old MIX106.5 “accidentally” gave away 3 x $50,000 prizes instead of the one that was budgeted for. Apparently, it remains a lesson for stations everywhere on how not to run a on-air contest.
