Finney Media Finds Women Are Primary Christian Radio Listeners

Women dominate the listenership of Christian radio stations in both music and talk formats, according to research conducted by Dallas-based Finney Media. Finney surveyed more than 23,000 listeners at 72 radio stations, networks and programs on the relevant formats of Music, Music & Talk, Teaching and Spoken Word for the study.
