How They Rank and Why

4/17/2005 08:00:00 PM Eastern

The Top 25 Station Groups are ranked according to the percentage of the 109.6 million U.S. TV homes they reach, as measured by Nielsen Media Research. Stations’ reach is calculated to correspond with FCC ownership rules (listed as coverage FCC in the tables below). The FCC method discounts by half the reach of UHF stations, those channel 14 and above. The ranking also shows reach without the discount (coverage total). If a group owns other stations in a market, those stations’ coverage is not counted in the group’s total. This year, BIA Financial Network, which collects the list of stations and computes coverage, excluded stations run under joint marketing and programming agreements. It also omitted stations operated under time-brokerage deals. As always, low-power stations, satellite stations, translators and stations that have only cable distribution were excluded. Sources: B&C, BIA Financial Network, Nielsen Media Research.
