The Fall 2011 radio ratings are out, and Corus Entertainment has taken the lead with the top AM and FM stations in Winnipeg.

BBM Canada released the ratings card Thursday, measuring the period from September 5 to October 30, 2011.

CJOB and Power 97 came out as the top two radio choices for listeners during the latest ratings book.

Hot 103 had the top FM spot this time last year, but has dipped slightly behind Power 97. The Astral-owned station said today they have still held on to their target female demographics. In the Spring 2011 book, Hot 103 had a 15.6 share.

The new Energy 106 proved to be successful launching into the local market this past summer. The Top 40/CHR station began by playing non-stop, commercial-free music from July until September.
