WTOP’s Jim Farley Calls WaPo‘s Bluff

The “Special Section” of WaPo‘s print edition today, says that “nearly three times as many Washingtonians age 25-54 read the Post each week than listen to WTOP, the largest audience station.”

WTOP VP of News Jim Farley says that’s “bogus.” Farley tells FishbowlDC that there is “no source for that wildly inaccurate claim and that 659,600 people 25-54 listen to WTOP each week, more than the entire circulation of the newspaper.”

Nearly 1.5 million individual listeners of all ages listen to WTOP weekly (Source-Arbitron).

Farley says he can’t understand why WaPo would engage in “a pissing match with WTOP using an unsourced claim that can be checked.”
