Billboard’s Triple A Chart Gets a Makeover | Billboard

Billboard’s Triple A radio airplay chart undergoes a significant makeover, as its reporting panel expands from 23 to 32 stations, including new major-market non-commercial reporters. The upgrade (overseen by Billboard’s charts department) reflects the format’s growing influence as a starter for eventual multi-format smashes.

Since its launch 18 years ago, the survey has welcomed veterans and new artists alike, generally ranging in sound from adult-friendly alternative to singer/songwriters, blues, folk and more.

Joining the Nielsen BDS-based chart’s reporting panel are top-10 market stations (according to Nielsen Audio rankings) WFUV (90.7) New York; KCSN (88.5) Los Angeles; KKXT (91.7) Dallas; WXPN (88.5) Philadelphia; and WERS (88.9) Boston. Also new are fellow non-comms KCMP (89.3) Minneapolis; WTMD (89.7) Baltimore; and WFPK (91.9) Louisville, Ky. Commercial signals WWNU (92.1) Columbia, S.C., and WRSI (93.9/101.5) Northampton, Mass., also now contribute to the tally.
