The Houston sports radio ratings for the October book were published by the Houston Chronicle and not much has changed since we last looked at the performances of the top three sports stations. Sports Radio 610 KILT continues to lead the way, ESPN Houston 97.5 sits in second, and SportsTalk 790 lingers in third.
However, these latest numbers don’t include 790’s recent addition of Josh Innes in afternoons. A partial performance for his show will be available in the November book. The next book will also offer a partial look at how 610’s midday show performs without Dante Hall who exited the station at the end of October.
To capture how each station’s weekday shows are performing, I’ve separated each brand so you can get a better look. 610 has the four highest rated shows in the market during the week. Interesting enough, Charlie Pallilo finished as 790’s highest rated show this month. He had not led the station for quite some time.
Sports Radio 610:
- The Triple Threat with Rich Lord, Sean Pendergast & Ted Johnson (2-6 pm) = 4.5
- MaD Radio with Mike Meltser & Seth Payne (6-10 am) = 4.0
- Gallant At Night/Houston Texans (7p-11p) = 3.3
- In The Loop with John Lopez, Cody Stoots & Dante Hall (10a-2p) = 3.0
*** Dante Hall is no longer a part of the midday program
ESPN Huston 97.5:
- The Blitz with Fred Faour & AJ Hoffman (4p-7p) = 2.7
- Unfiltered with John Granato & Sean Salisbury (11a-1p) = 2.5
- Granato & Raheel with Del (9a-11a) = 2.4
- Joel Blank (1p-4p) = 2.0
Sports Talk 790:
- Charlie Pallilo (2p-6p) = 2.3
- The Proper Gentlemen of Sports with Lance Zierlein & Matt Thomas (6a-9a) = 1.8
- The Bottom Line with Adam Clanton & Sean Jones (11a-2p) = 1.8
- In The Trenches with Greg Koch & N.D. Kalu (9a-11a) = 1.3
*** Charlie Pallilo has been replaced in afternoons by Josh Innes

- Sports Radio 610 = 3.7 (tied for 9th)
- ESPN Houston 97.5 = 2.2 (21st)
