Zip codes are based on "Zones"... With universal movement of phone numbers in the US being partially implemented and loss of area codes as a physical location in the next few years, that is no longer feasible. You should be able to find a database with zip-codes tied to a viewing area from some of your clients or the FCC.

I have a system where I have access to incoming phone #, the customers phone# and zip code, also the operators can ask the customer the station they are seeing the ad on. But the rub is the marketing folks say that asking the customer is not accurate, so I'm looking for another way of coming up with that info. The marketing folks can provide a table of stations, zip codes and incoming phone #'s assigned to them, but how does one figure out based on zip code or customer's phone # which viewing area they are in? Other than hard code or table every zip or phone exchange? Any ideas are welcome! (even a long walk off a short pier!)
