(from OrlandoSentinel.com) – The October ratings story is kind of boring because it’s familiar: WFTV-Channel 9 was the big winner. Of course, it’s not boring to WFTV, which will happily promote its success. You have been warned.
The ABC affiliate ranked first with the 25-to-54 age group, which is most important to news advertisers, from morning to late evening. (These ratings refer to the age group, unless otherwise noted.)
WFTV made its strongest showing at 6 p.m. weekdays, when it averaged 36,674 viewers. WESH-Channel 2 ranked second with 23,067, followed by WKMG-Channel 6 with 10,280 and WOFL-Channel 35 with 8,715. (The Orlando Sentinel has a content-sharing agreement with WOFL.)
In promoting it dominance, WFTV said its newscasts through the day pulled in 44 percent of the audience to WESH’s 27 percent, WKMG’s 18 percent and WOFL’s 11 percent….Cont….
(from OrlandoSentinel.com) – In the August ratings, WFTV-Channel 9 put distance between itself and its rivals during the day and in early evening. WFTV may have benefited from the exit last month of WESH-Channel 2 anchor Martha Sugalski.

(edited from OrlandoSentinel.com) – WESH-Channel 2 made the biggest headlines Thursday by announcing that anchor Martha Sugalski had departed.
But WKMG-Channel 6, WOFL-Channel 35 and especially WFTV-Channel 9 could point to ratings victories for July.
Speculation that Sugalski could land at another local station a year from now reflected the intense competition among stations.
In the ratings period that ended Wednesday, WFTV was tops with the 25-to-54 age group in early morning, from 4 to 6:30 and at 11 p.m.
WKMG scored a victory at noon, and WOFL remained the leader at 10 p.m.
