The Americans are dominating the Olympics,
which artists are currently dominating your market?
Rich Davis, KDWB: Chainsmokers/Daya, JT and Adele are tearing it up for me!

Jeremy Rice, WBLI: Bieber, Drake, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Calvin Harris, and I LOVE the wave of great Pop Dance music this summer.

Jared Banks, KUDD: twenty one pilots are crushing it! Pop friendly, emotionally resonant. Killer live show. Great artists in person! I hope they keep it up!

Erik Bradley, B96: The Chainsmokers + Halsey, Justin Bieber (with Major Lazer & DJ Snake), Fifth Harmony, Adele, Shawn Mendes.

Kobi, WNRW/WLGX: Drake and DJ Khaled.

Chase Murphy, KXXM: twenty one pilots have been our Michael Phelps and Chainsmokers have been our Katie Ledecky.

Kobe, WWHT:
Drew from The Chainsmokers went to Syracuse University, so when they drop new music it’s almost an automatic for Hot1079.

Lenny Diana, WLZX: It does not matter what market you are in if you are some form of a rock station I am here to tell you that Kings of Leon dominates your market. They can draw more that 90% of your playlist and have a much better catalog than any band you play. I do not understand the prejudice against this band when a new album comes out. But seriously guys keep doing what you are doing, I'm sure it's going well for you. This isn't even up for a debate. It's fact. 

Jason Reed, WAEZ: Charlie Puth, Gnash, Florida-Georgia Line and Sia

Ron "Crash" Kissell, WKZQ
: Twenty One Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers & New Beat Fund

Brian Michel, iHeartMedia/Atlanta: Thomas Rhett at Country.
Java Joel, WAKS: twentyone pilots, Drake, Sia, Michael Stanley Band.

Jonathan Shuford, WRVW: Drake is everywhere.  You can’t escape him.  Also Adele and twenty one pilots.

Jammer, WEZB: Drake, The Chainsmokers, Sia, Kiiara.

John Mayer, WFLZ: Chainsmokers and Bieber right now!  That sound is grabbing the attention of our listeners and it seems like a lot of other acts are trying to duplicate it.

Nikki Nite, Entercom/Austin: twenty one pilots and Adele.

Jonathan Reed, WNOK: Drake and Rihanna.

JB King, KLUC: Drake and Rihanna hands down!

Fish Boy, WKRZ: twenty one pilots are sweeping all the medals in this market!  What a massive roll these guys continue to be on!

Toby Knapp, WIHT: The stars in DC radio are Meg Stevens, Tommy Chuck, Kenny King and Doubledown… the people who keep the work stuff above us out of the way so me, Kane, EB – and the teams on WMZQ, DC101, WASH-FM and BIG 100.3 in our cluster - can create with moments abandon. They push back on the ridiculous, minimize the stuff which clutters our listening environment and coach us to be DC’s most dynamic pop culture influencers and personalities and the results on our brands speak for themselves.

Derrick “DC” Cole, WLAN: I feel like twenty one pilots have been in some type of power rotation for the last eight months! Love those guys.

Chris Michaels, FM 100: Adele, Sia, twenty one pilots and Justin Timberlake.

Big Rob, KSME: Can't get away from Drake, Chainsmokers, twenty one pilots or Rihanna. They're ruling the summer here! 
Bennett, WZMP: Drake and The Chainsmokers.

Rob Roberts, Q100: Drake and Rihanna are both sharing the Gold Medal spot on the riser. 

R Dub! Z90: Drake, Calvin Harris, 21 Pilots, Rihanna!

Tommy Chuck, WIHT: The artists dominating DC are the ones between the songs on HOT 99.5. Kane Show, Ryan Seacrest, Toby Knapp and Elizabethany. Cue Nelly, it’s HOT in here!

Sassy, WKXJ: twenty one pilots is the Michael Phelps of music right now, Rihanna is Simone Biles, Adele is Katie Ledecky, Justin Bieber is Ryan Lochte, and for honorable mention Drake would be Usain Bolt because his records shoot up the charts so quickly.

Jon Zellner, iHeartMedia: All the ones requiring special artist separation this month… Drake, Rihanna, Chainsmokers, Adele, Justin Timberlake, etc.

Kid Jay, KGGI: Drake is Michael Phelps. Rihanna is Katie Ledecky.

Bailey, KTCL: Twenty One Pilots!

Tony Waitekus, WHTQ: Twenty One Pilots and Chainsmokers

Chris Payne, KRZQ: Most rock acts...and hair bands from 1987.

Cindy Miller, WXNR: Probably the biggest artist here in Eastern North Carolina is the guy who painted the velvet Elvis.

Jimmy Steal, Power 106: The Americano’s “In My Foreign.”

Matt Taullto, WBYR:  Apparently Loverboy and Night Ranger. They're the only bands local festivals ever book!

Ross Mahoney, KXTE: Twenty One PilotsBlink-182 and Pierce The Veil
