They’re Number One


In 1997 Kari McFarland reported on the Ozarks’ number one radio station, KTTS.  While teens were not listening to the station’s music much, something else did draw them in.

Back Story:  Students were discussing their favorite radio stations in class, and everyone agreed their parents listened mainly to KTTS.  The station was number one in the ratings year after year.

The Focus Statement: “Radio station dominates ratings”

Trivia:  Brian Vandenberg, the KTTS News Director interviewed in this story, moved to television a few years later, and remains a news producer at KY3.
