TurnTable to Launch Official Top Airplay Chart
TurnTable Charts will launch the Official Top Airplay Chart on the July 6, 2020, which employs a combined metric of measures of radio airplay in Nigeria across all musical genres.
Rankings on the chart will be based on number of plays and ratings of radio stations among audience. The decision to combine radio airplay is line with the reality of Nigerian music scene, and the aim of TurnTable Charts to create credible charting system in the country.
The radio airplay data will be collected on a Friday to Thursday weekly cycle to coincide with the global Friday release of new music. Over 50 radio stations encompassing several states in Nigeria, and 6 cable channels are electronically monitored every day and every week by Radiomonitor. This data will be used to compile the TurnTable Official Top Airplay Chart.
As a result, the Chart Watch feature will be moved to every Tuesdays to provide a mid-week analysis/forecast of the next Official Top Airplay Chart.
This chart is the first of the three weekly charts that will be launched by TurnTable Charts in July.
