Dayton TV market 8th nationally for college hoops


The Dayton television market is the eighth best in the country when it comes to college basketball for the second straight year, according to research analyzed by ESPN. ESPN examined the 56 metered markets that carried its college basketball games in 2012-13.

Dayton’s 2.0 market share was only behind those of national champion Louisville (4.5), Greensboro, N.C. (3.1), Raleigh-Durham, N.C. (3.0), Indianapolis (2.9), Kansas City (2.7), and both Cincinnati and Columbus (each had 2.1). Charlotte and a tie of Knoxville and Nashville rounded out the top 10.

This was the 11th year ESPN complied the data and Dayton has always been in the top 14 markets. The Miami Valley has been in the top 10 three straight years and four of the last six.

Dayton ranked fifth in viewership for the 2013 NCAA tournament with a 15.3 share.

The Dayton Flyers had 26 games on television in 2012-13, including 10 locally on WHIO-TV. The Wright State Raiders had 10 games on television in 2012-13, including three locally on Dayton CW.
