Airplay Monitor
   Billboard Magazine's report on radio airplay 
Airplay Monitor began in 1993 to provide a readable view of radio play of songs in four formats (rock, Top 40, Country and R&B).
In the words of editor Sean Ross on the occasion of the publication's 5th anniversary:

"From the beginning, it's been our intention to offer radio programming and label promotion staffs Broadcast Data Systems information in an easy -to -use package and in as timely a manner as possible. And since 1994, when our country publication became
the first Monitor to offer news and editorial features, we've tried to offer the industry a forum for the serious (although not
solemn) exchange of programming ideas - a
trade magazine without cliches (although we hope to help take your business to the "next level" anyway) or record hype. At a
time when most trades are as much in the record -promotion business as the journalism
business, it means a lot to us when major programmers tell us they consider ours the only one without a hidden agenda."
