Television’s KDIN is #1 in the Nation
Central Iowa Station Ranks First Among Public Television Stations Across the Country
(Johnston, Iowa) – Iowa Public Television’s KDIN (channel 11) in the Des Moines-Ames market is the most-watched public television station in the country, according to Nielsen Media Research and TRAC Media Services (February 2012).
KDIN, part of Iowa Public Television’s statewide network of stations, ranked first among public television stations nationwide in diary whole-week cumes. Due to budget constraints, Iowa Public Television only measures audience numbers in the network’s largest viewing area, the Des Moines-Ames market. Iowa Public Television analyses have shown that the results for KDIN are typically similar statewide.
“With ever-increasing options on television today, we’re honored to learn that viewers are using our services in such strong numbers,” said Daniel K. Miller, executive director and general manager of Iowa Public Television. “Viewers are responding to our coverage of local events, quality arts and science programs, and trusted public affairs offerings. We will continue our work to provide this important statewide service for all Iowans.”
Iowa Public Television measures audience numbers on an annual basis, tracking both current numbers and viewership trends.
