A Look at Clear Channel by the Numbers

Excerpted from Taylor On Radio:

• 892 stations, $2.9 billion in radio revenue last year. Clear Channel now holds 260 AM and 632 FM stations in the U.S. (all the pieces of this statistical portrait refer to the U.S. only, and not CC’s 50% stake in Austereo, operating in Australia and New Zealand). 149 of the stations are in the top 25 markets.

• Radio overlaps outdoor in many markets. In New York, market #1, Clear Channel has five radio stations and 2,607 displays owned by CC Outdoor. In L.A, it’s eight stations and 9,984 displays. In Chicago, 7 stations and 11,709. In San Francisco, seven stations and 10,104. And in Dallas, six stations and 17,571 displays – the most in any single market. Even in markets 51 through 100, Clear Channel has 236 stations and nearly 14,000 displays. In markets 101-150, it’s got 95 stations and nearly 3,900 displays.
• Clear Channel-owned Katz Media reps 3,900 stations – 80% of them owned by other groups. Katz is also active in TV, though Clear Channel sold off its TV station division several years ago. Katz reps about 600 TV and digital multicast stations.
• Clear Channel Radio has 15,036 employees in the U.S. – about 400 of them in unions. A higher proportion of staffers outside the U.S. are in unions – 342 of them out of 5,247 international staffers.
• Premiere supplies programs and services to more than 5,800 stations. Its list of more than 90 offerings includes Rush Limbaugh, Jim Rome, Steve Harvey, Ryan Seacrest and Delilah.
• Clear Channel owns 13 state networks. Those are a combination of sports, news and ag networks in Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia.
