It was a country kind of radio town this fall, with KCCY "Y96.9" FM and KATC "Cat Country" FM topping the Arbitron ratings chart for all listeners ages 12 andolder.

For morning types, that often meant starting the day with either syndicated Bobby Bones from Nashville on KCCY or Cutter and Alisha from the local KATC studios.

The population count for the Colorado Springs Metro Area ages 12+ during the fall ratings period, Sept. 12-Dec. 4, was 550,150.

Four well-known local stations were not Arbitron subscribers and thus not ranked: KILO FM (94.3), KRXP FM (103.9), KRDO FM (105.5), KRDO AM (1240).

Nonsubscribers are not allowed to use Arbitron ratings numbers, including to set advertising rates. Several other stations didn't record listener numbers high enough to register.
