Kentucky Loves Basketball More than Any Other State

As part of my radio gig, I generally read the “industry trade papers” that tell me the state of radio across this great land. I find it oddly fascinating to read about various DJs sued in Des Moines for this or that, and while I am drinking a tasty beverage, the daily “Inside Radio” newsletter is always worth a read. But today’s was especially interesting as the newsletter posted survey results on which markets care the most about college basketball. According to Inside Radio, Lexington is the #1 market in America for “following college hoops” with a full 83% of the people saying they follow the sport. The #2 market was also Kentucky-based, as Louisville was next with 75% who care. A large percentage of those can also be presumed to be UK fans, meaning that this state cares about Kentucky basketball more than anyone else, anywhere, by a lot. The #3 market was Syracuse, New York with 62%, followed by Raleigh-Durham with 60% and then Winston-Salem/Greensboro with 58%.

So whether we are down and having a bit of a bad season, or cutting down the nets, those that care the most about the sport live here…and yet still don’t listen to Chris Cross.

    Hey Matt, tell your friends at that there newsletter that Chris Cross said “to get over ‘ere!” (Worst schtick ever… has probably used that since the 70s and he still thinks it’s a great calling card)

    Dad gum dyslexia caused me to spell my name backwards. Wish the girl in the jersey was facing backwards.

    ESPN 1300 = Tolerable for 21 hours a day (-Chris Cross commericals) + 3 hours of torture. That guy must sell the hell out of radio spots or he has some filthy pictures of the LM in LM Communications.
