Is spot load an indication of how much money a station is making, or how many advertisers the station actually has? Our example comes out of Bend OR, where KXIX has a regular schedule of short breaks, about 3 per hour, each about 2 minutes. KWXS on the other hand, only does 1 break per hour as far as I know, and only has about 3 spots per break, that's on a high day. Sunday afternoons there are times when there is only 1 spot per break. Also, are there spots that are sold to every station in a particular market at different rates? It seems like 90% of the spots on the radio in my market are the same on all stations. KOMO and KRWM have some of the same spots that KPLZ and the other CHRs don't have, and there are some spots that only appear on certain stations, but again, most spots are the same. Is this usual?
