Los Angeles is the second largest radio listening market in the nation, following closely behind New York.


Spanish language radio draws about a quarter of radio listeners in Los Angeles.


Radio stations KIIS-FM, KBIG-FM, KFI-AM, KOST-FM, KROQ-FM and KLVE-FM jockey with one another from month to month for lead spot among Los Angeles radio listeners. Stations are measured in "cumulative audience" or total number of unique listeners who tune in for at least five minutes per week. This number can approach nearly 4 million listeners.


February 28, 2003, was the final day of broadcasting for one of the oldest radio stations in Los Angeles. KFSG ceased broadcasting religious talk and music format to make way for a Spanish language music format. Founded by the famed and flamboyant evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, KFSG first went on the air on February 6, 1924. McPherson earlier founded Angelus Temple, LIFE Bible College, and the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel (KFSG breaking out to K-Four Square Gospel). She was the first woman to preach by radio.


Larry Mantle has hosted the radio talk program AirTalk (FM 89.3), continuously since April 1985. It is the longest continuously running daily talk program in Southern California.


In 2012, about 80 percent of surveyed employed adults age 18 or older living in the Los Angeles metropolitan area listen to radio each day. Their average listening time totals 2 hours and 15 minutes. Of these, Spanish-speaking working adults spend the most time on average listening to radio (Source: Arbitron).


KUSC (FM 91.5) is the largest non-profit classical music radio station in the nation. In 1946, KUSC also became the first radio station in the nation owned and operated by a privately endowed university.
