National Stations Listeners JNLR 2013_2

The national picture shows how the individual stations have done in the twelve months. Across the board the national stations have all dropped in the comparable twelve months. The three taxpayer funded stations dropped 50,000 in total and now have a combined reach of 34%, down one point. 2FM is showing a 29,000 decrease year on year, but, to be fair, if you look at the quarterly charts below you’ll see that it’s a slight improvement book on book and all comparisons here are twelve months to twelve months – not book on book. In percentage terms Lyric took the […]

Newstalk Listnership 2013_2

Newstalk would have to be happy with the individual performances, with the Breakfast Show the only slot under scrutiny dropping back. Over the surveys the slot has been a myriad of musical chairs and thus different individuals trying to make their mark. On the bright site both Moncrieff and Dunne could be call to top of the class for a ‘star’.  The station’s biggest draw, Hook, added more listeners and the debacle that was off the ball still hasn’t been decided. The programme dropped 15% over the survey, four months of which was with the new format – post resignations. […]
