    Nielsen listings of stations "Home to Market" since that is the accepted-by-FCC definition of a "market" today.

    The only CT area in the book is a slice of Fairfield County.

    Rockland / Westchester / Putnam is not an embedded market... so I forgot to count that group. 23 stations, iincluding a couple of translators.

    And the fact that the Chicago market is as large as it is... wow. I do think that market is a bit too big, the suburban stations cannot reach Chi-town at all, and there are a TON of suburban stations that are pretty much the only reason the market is as large as it is.
    No different than Eastern long island.

    The Arbitron definition was based on listening and commute patterns, and comes from an era when the big AM stations covered those farther off counties. Today, nobody wants to redefine the metro, as it would mean slipping from #3 to # 5 or even #6 in population, which would hurt billings.

    I definitely think Waukegan/Racine should get a market of its own.
    Chicago broadcasters just voted in the last month or so to keep the Kenosha county in the metro. And there are not enough potential subscribers to merit an embedded book.

    The only reason I think this market and NYC's market are as large as it is is because the signals transmitting from downtown can reach much of the market. Even then, much of Suffolk County and Putnam County can't get a local-quality signal out of their stations.
    The market definitions are based on the percentage of local listening and commuting is attributed to "home" stations. Nielsen regularly revises metros... quite a few get changed every year.
