In a streak lasting since 2014, Hubbard Radio, LLC’s WTOP-FM in Washington, D.C., was once again the top billing radio station in 2021, reports BIA.

BIA estimates that WTOP-FM pulled $70 million in revenues in 2021, up 12.9% from $62 million in 2020. This surpasses the overall growth rate of 10.3% that BIA forecasts for over-the-air radio from 2020 to 2021, as the industry started to pull out of the pandemic slump. WTOP-FM is also the only station on this list to surpass its pre-pandemic revenue figure of $69.8 million in 2019.

Hubbard Radio, LLC garnered 30.5% of the over-the-air revenue in the D.C. market in 2021.

BIA Advisory Services states it is the recognized authority for data-centered research, analysis, consulting and valuations for the local media industry.

WTOP-FM – branded WTOP Radio and WTOP News – is a commercial all-news radio station licensed to serve Washington, D.C.
