From Countdown to the Marathon to Post Marathon coverage, KTLA triumphed with dominant rating ranks among other Los Angeles broadcast stations!
Peaking with a 4.9 rating/12 share as the Gender Challenge neared its completion, the 2012 Honda LA Marathon won the top spot in the LA media market in the 7a – 10a time slot. It also ranked third for the day for all sports programming behind the two NCAA Tournament basketball games on KCBS, but easily bested both NASCAR and PGA Tour telecasts.
