Aaron Klein’s WABC Radio show made the new Talk Stream Live “Power 50,” which ranks the “most influential and most listened-to streaming talk show hosts.”
Talk Stream Live says it sampled more than 3.5 million listeners during 2013 to produce its Power 50 Report.
“Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” is one of only four weekend shows to make the list and is the only local weekend show on the list.
Klein is also a WND senior reporter. His two-hour broadcast live from the Tel Aviv beach had more total listeners than many nationally known radio personalities who broadcast three hours a day, five days per week on dozens or even hundreds of stations.
Klein came in at No. 37, ranking higher than national daily hosts such as Mike Huckabee, Mancow, Larry Elder, Lars Larson and Bill Handel. Huckabee ended his show in December but was still included in the latest ratings.
In both 2013 and 2012, Klein also made the radio industry’s highly coveted Talkers’ “Heavy Hundred,” the only local weekend host to make the prestigious list both years. With thousands of weekday shows on air, it is rare for a weekend program to make the list, which is often cited as the most definitive radio rankings.
At the top of the “Power 50” list is Rush Limbaugh, followed by Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and Mark Levin.
