Billboard's Triple A Chart Gets a Makeover

The tally welcomes several influential radio stations in major markets, further solidifying the chart's status as a launch pad for multi-format hits.

Perhaps such up-and-comers now scaling the chart as Boy & Bear, the Wild Feathers and Lucius will add their names to the ranking's record book, given the format's continuous quest to expose the best in new adult alternative music.
"These stations are music tastemakers in their respective markets," Tombrink observes. "They are often the first to play developing artists' records and the first to commit to full-time airplay.
"They enable us to reach a very specific and passionate music consumer audience."
