Big, Big News for WDAV
Supporters of WDAV received the following note from Frank Dominguez – WDAV General Manager with some really big news.
Well, something happened recently that has never happened before. I want to share this news with you – as a WDAV listener/supporter – because you are a very important part of this story.
In the most recent ratings report from Nielsen Media, WDAV ranked as the Number 1 station in the Charlotte radio market. As I said, this has never happened before, and I don’t just mean in our area – this is the first time a classical music station has ever led its market in the modern era of radio ratings!
So, I write to thank you humbly for all you do in support of WDAV Classical Public Radio. It is certainly true that you are the reason we do what we do, but you are also the reason that we can do it! Without you, this historic occasion would truly not be possible.
We’re delighted that so many radio listeners in the Charlotte region care about classical music and turn to WDAV to experience it. Public media like WDAV isn’t traditionally driven by the ratings, but this landmark does serve to demonstrate the impact we have in the community, and the special way in which we engage with our listeners.
Once again, let me express my deep appreciation for your role in WDAV’s ongoing growth over more than four decades. Because of it, we can continue to provide this timeless and enduring music in the coming weeks, months, and years.
