After 40 Years, Is The CMJ College Radio Chart Dead?

CMJ logoRight after 40 years the CMJ Chart – the only chart that measures college radio – could be gone forever. If true, its a blow each to college radio and to the several indie artists and labels that utilized it to launch their careers. 

cmj logoFor the final two weeks, CMJ has failed to publish its weekly college radio charts. Adam Klein of Abaculi Media, who owns CMJ  had sent and an email, obtained by Pitchfork, that the charts may well resume just before the end of last week, and would “definitely” be back this week.  But this week, an additional e mail sent out read, “There will not be charts this week and I will let you know exactly where we stand on timing ahead of the finish of the week.”

Klein, who also promised but failed to create the popular CMJ Music Marathon has not responded to comment.

Editor: If any individual desires to start an additional college radio chart, Hypebot would adore to support publish it.
