WTHU 2nd Place AM Station in Region!
By: Donna Betteridge


July 31, 2008, Thurmont, MD. On July 30, Stuart McRae the President of ABC Radio called Michael Betteridge, President of the Christian Radio Coalition to congratulate WTHU 1450am on the Arbitron ratings released for Spring ‘08 (April 3 - June 25).

For the second consecutive ratings period, WTHU maintained an Average Quarter Hour (AQH) rating making WTHU 11th in the overall market of 29 stations of 189,500 listeners. WTHU is the number two AM radio station in the region!


The definition of Average Quarter-Hour Persons (AQH Persons) is the average number of persons listening to a particular station for at least five minutes during a 15-minute period. The ratings in WTHU’s area are only sampled twice a year in the spring and fall. The next ratings will be out sometime around Christmas.

Some comparison figures for perspective on what this means:

WTHU substantial listener share over WAVA 105.1 FM and WCRH 90.5 FM, two other Christian radio stations in the listening area

  • WTHU tied with powerhouse WMAL 630am in Washington DC for listener share!

This is incredible news when you realize that WTHU just recently changed ownership. Something must be going right for the little station in Thurmont, who is struggling to upgrade their facilities, on-air talent, add new programming and support the local community.


Here are some of the reasons they are showing a marked difference:

“Rise and Shine” Mon-Fri 7-10amMorning Drive – all you need to start your day right

“Energy Matters” Mon-Fri 10-10:30amEnergy call-in show with Bill Rodenberg

“Kids Korner” Saturday 10amFun kids show with Aleta Jones
