There are radio stations and radio programs that state that they are number one but cannot document it as fact. Most subscribe to Arbitron which they pay hundreds of thousands to do so,but can not actually state how many persons listened to there broadcast. In fact according to Arbitron's fall book 'The Thaddeus Matthews Show" beat WDIA's Jeff Lee and WREC's Ben Ferguson in the afternoons.
On February 21,2009 I started using a online streaming company called SYNCLIVE which allows my show to be viewed in real time each day from 4-7 pm. SYNCLIVE also allows me to archive my shows for later viewing,they also do a daily accounting of those who click on to view the show both on SYNCLIVE.COM and this site.
According to their accounting between February 21,2009 and January 8,2010 there were 790,248 viewers of "The Thaddeus Matthews Show" online of which 772.687 views took place right here on this site. As you can see from the documents there are shows with blank numbers which are the shows that i did not choose to archive. So it's very safe to state that over 800,000 people viewed my show.
The 800,000 viewers have nothing to do with the countless thousands that listen each day only by way of radio. So advertisers the best place to spend your advertising dollars is with a show that can document at least 800,000- 1,000,000 viewers and listeners and will hear about your product or political position.
