Why Do Radio Stations Usually Play Talk Shows Early in the Morning?

    I have noticed that most radio stations play talk shows early in the morning, and I cannot speak for all listeners, but, when I am driving to work in the morning, I would much rather hear music than talk shows, as music improves my emotional state for more than does any talk show.

    What does everyone else say about this? Do you have any idea why radio stations usually play talk show early in the morning, and do you wish that they would play music more often? Is it because that is the only way that people would actually listen to talk shows, if there were no other alternatives?

    Ima say it's all about the ratings. It's safe to say that they're more present in the morning is BECAUSE there are people driving to work and wanna tune in to it.

    I rarely listen to music on the radio and prefer to plug in my ipod, so I'm not too bothered by it.

    That's when people are usually driving to work. Its light listening that update people on what's going on in the world in a fashion that's engaging and helps time pass by on an otherwise groggy drive.

    I cannot speak for other people, but music would help me far more than talk shows to help time pass by and put me in a positive emotional state.
