Nearly two decades have passed since Sandi Klein first cracked the mic on 1010/WINS. Yesterday, after 13 years as an afternoon anchor, Klein pulled her last air shift at the station.

Since November 2010, as part of an on-air restructuring, Klein and veteran p.m. drive anchor Larry Kanter worked a newly configured midday shift from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

She went “off format” for a brief goodbye to listeners.

“More people get their news from 1010 WINS than from any other radio station in the nation. And it’s been my honor and pleasure to deliver it for the past 20 years,” Klein says.

Then Klein announced newscast credits “for the last time,” including the service aide and editor.

Number One WLTW-FM Gets a Christmas ‘Bonus’ In Latest Ratings

It was a Merry Christmas for Lite-FM/WLTW as the Holiday ratings show another win for the perennial number one, according to Arbitron.

WLTW, which goes with a Christmas music format from Thanksgiving to Christmas, was rewarded big time.

It scored a huge 12.3 for the Holiday period from December 9 to January 5, while traditional second-best WCBS-FM was well-distanced at 4.8. (For some comparison, in the December ratings book, WLTW beat WCBS-FM, 8.4 to 5.7.)

Following that, much of the survey was without change.

WHTZ/Z100 kept hold of number three, dropping slightly to 4.5.

Another Clear Channel station, WKTU also slipped .1. The Rhythmic AC had a 4.4.

Tropical WSKQ stayed put at number five with a 4.0.

WCBS-AM did see some modest gains with a 3.5 (up .4). Sister station WINS moved ahead .1 to 3.2.
