HITS Daily Double


The Gary Spangler-led Republic promo team is once again #1 in overall label share (15.4), according to Mediabase's latest yearly chart, which tracks radio action from 11/8/20 through 11/6/21. Republic is also #1 at the Top 40, Rhythmic, Hot AC and AC formats. Spanky and gang plan to celebrate by blocking Todd Hensley's number. Republic has held the overall share crown for an incredible eight years running.

Brenda Romano/Chris Lopes-led Interscope scores the #2 spot with a 14.1 share and is #1 at Alternative and Urban. The bronze goes to Columbia's Peter Gray-led squad (11.7), who've held the top three positions at Pop for four weeks and take #2 at the format. The Keith Rothschild-piloted RCA department (10.3) seizes fourth place as well as #1 at R&B and Triple A and #2 at Rhythm. Mike Chester's team at #6 Warner (7.2) has the #1 most-played artist in Pop and Hot AC in Dua Lipa.

Pictured are IGA Urban promo captains Larry Khan and Keinon Johnson, who are celebrating their second consecutive year as the #1 Urban label. They've opted for coal in their stockings as opposed to year-end HITS magazines.

Mazels and congrats to all of the above and anyone who ever called anyone else "buddy."
